    1. In Legally Blonde, when Warner came crawling back to Elle and she shut him down in the most brilliant way possible.

    2. In Hidden Figures, when Katherine Johnson wasn't afraid to stand up for herself against Mr. Harrison.

    3. In The Devil Wears Prada, when Andy left Miranda high and dry in Paris because she couldn't take the cruelty at Runway anymore.

    4. In Waiting to Exhale, when Bernie set her cheating husband's car and clothes on fire because the jerk deserved it.

    5. In The Help, when Minny got sweet, sweet revenge on Hilly when she made her a pie made out of poop.
