Playing House, GLOW, Claws, Preacher, Badass women of TV

USA, Netflix, TNT, AMC

To quote Cher, "This is a woman's world," and honestly, we couldn't be happier.

Women are ruling the box office—Wonder Woman is the hero we all need—and are continuing to tear it up on TV with a gambit of shows featuring some of the most badass (in their own ways) characters. The summer of 2017 is officially the summer of kick-butt women on TV, from the women going after the Iron Throne on Game of Thrones to the two best friends who turned a real-life cancer battle into a sweet comedy in Playing House.

 

All hail these kickass women!
