Are you being ironic, subby? Pretty Woman teaches us that a white, well-educated woman can overcome the natural prejudices of society and become a prostitute who, by providing enough sexual favors, can someday meet a lonely billionaire and live happily ever after.

IN all seriousness, you can't win by answering this one.
Erin Brockovich, as an example mentioned before, is an obnoxious overachiever. And in reality, the male judges probably hate that.
Disney Princesses move into someone else's castle and it's called Cinderella's Castle and Snow White's Castle? Gold digging freaks.
Ripley from the Alien franchise - murders baby animals
Princess Leia - kissed her brother
Clarise Starling fell in love with a serial murdering cannibal

There has to be a strong independent single female who is a housewife raising 2.5 children and caring for pets and also has a supersuccessful self-built business and career and runs a charity for orphans with parents and is attractive enough for male judges to masturbate to but not too attractive for female judges to dislike her out of jealousy.

Actually, Vivian was not well-educated. At the end of the movie, she states her intention of moving to San Francisco to earn her G.E.D before Edward comes to her rescue in the limo.

And she was not a prostitute, but an escort. Any money paid is strictly for her time and companionship. If sex does occur, it is between two consenting adults.

The Muthaship: She does what she has to do to make ends meet in difficult times. She despises it, but she doesn't let it consume her. She maintains her principles, and avoids the pitfalls that put an end to most in the field (pimps, drugs, etc.). Even while engaging in this distasteful, dog eat dog line of work, she looks out for others. When given the opportunity to be the kept woman (but not the equal partner) of a man she actually does fall in love with, she declines. She was not willing to settle for a half measure of her dream.

How about Sally Fields in Mrs. Doubtfire. Aside from being duped into letting her husband back in the house, she was trying to do the best for her family.


Too funny, I was going to mention her, since in that movie she was the career woman, bread-winner, raising Matilda and such..
But she also married Robin Williams and let him dress up as a woman and paid him to let Joey Lawrence's little brother see his crank.

I was about to mention that - when we first meet Vivian, she's on the street. That's not an escort, that's a hooker. Edward's driving by in his fancy car, sees her in that awful wig and vinyl thigh-high boots and she gets in his car and goes to his hotel. That's not an escort, that's a hooker. An escort is someone who comes to you, after you arrange for her appearance with the madam, or manager, or whatever set-up exists.
