No discussion of women on fire is complete without a nod to three contemporary actresses who have worn their flames in spectacular fashion:

First, there's Jennifer Lawrence, the original "girl on fire" from The Hunger Games:

And then, of course, there's Emilia Clarke, the "mother of dragons" from Game of Thrones:



And, finally, not to be outdone, Natalie Dormer (who was in both The Hunger Games and Game of Thrones) now has her own fire-engulfed leading role in Showtime's Penny Dreadful: City of Angels:

To add to your already fantastic list of women on fire (Nancy Pelosi, AOC, Kiesha Lance Bottoms, Stacey Abrams, Tammy Duckworth, Rachel Maddow, and Alicia Keys), here are a few more that come to mind:

Ruth Bader Ginsberg
Elena Kagan
Sonia Sotomayor
Katie Porter
Janet Mock
Samantha Bee
Adele
Patrisse Cullors
Greta Thunberg
Demi Lovato
Sarah Cooper
Naomi Klein
Tammy Baldwin
Malala Yousafzai
Ayanna Pressley
Lady Gaga
Elizabeth Warren
Amy Schumer
Rihanna
Maxine Waters
Winona LaDuke
Camilla Cabello
Roxanne Gay
Rashida Tlaib
Kate McKinnon
Beyonce
Michelle Obama
Deb Haaland
Katy Perry
Chelsea Handler
Kamala Harris
Ariana Grande
Ilhan Omar
Margaret Cho
Sharice Davids
Billie Eilish
Muriel Bowser
Oprah Winfrey
Carmen Yulin Cruz
Joy Reid
Val Demings
Rebel Wilson
Lucy McBath
Meghan Markle
Amy Berman Jackson
Mary Trump

And last, but not least: Tarana Burke, Alyssa Milano, Ashley Judd, and Kristine Blasey Ford, along with every other woman who has had the courage to call out and face down their sexual attackers.
