Who Is She? Lisbeth Salander is the no-holds-bar, rule-breaking hacker in Stieg Larsson's bestselling Millennium book series, which has been adapted into three Swedish films and now the upcoming US version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. She's not just scary-smart, she's outright scary, and she'll fight for good to the death.
Lesson Learned: Lisbeth doesn't conform to social ideals of femininity, which is what makes her so awesome. She teaches us that you don't have to be anyone but yourself, and if people don't like who you are they can suck it.
