Here are the kick-ass characters portrayed by (L-R) Marian Rivera, Glaiza de Castro, Maja Salvador, and Claudine Barretto in Filipino teleseryes.



Teleseryes with avenging women as central characters are becoming a trend on Philippine television.

In fact, fans of two shows—GMA-7's Contessa and ABS-CBN's Wildflower—engaged in debates on social media about one being a "copycat" of the other.

However, did you know that revenge stories have been tackled in teleseryes for a long time now?

Most of these shows feature kick-ass women who vowed to succeed in life and get back at people who made their lives miserable in the past.

They inspired viewers by showing they can rise from the ashes and become even better women.

Since seeking revenge has become a popular plot in teleseryes, TV networks made sure to give the lead characters several distinct qualities that would differentiate them from previous projects.

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) lists down 13 female TV characters who proved to be worthy examples of women empowerment.
