Women In Books: Huffington Post Readers Pick Their Favorite Heroines

There's been a big stink about the difference between male and female writers, kicked up by VS Naipaul a couple of weeks ago when he said no woman was his literary match. So we started thinking, who are your favorite women characters in books?

We asked, you answered and everybody seems to love the Victorians, when the rebellious few stood out like sore thumbs. A few modern heroines made a showing as well.
