Showrunner Shonda Rhimes has taken us on more of an intense emotional roller coaster ride than some of our ex-boyfriends. Say what you will about the drama, but Rhimes certainly has a knack for creating shows that really mess with your head. At the same time, Shondaland series like Grey's Anatomy, Private PracticeHow to Get Away With Murder, and Scandal are replete with fiery leading ladies. Some might be described as utterly twisted, badass b***hes, while others are beloved but, TBH, kinda milquetoast.


So, to honor these weeknight TV heroines, we decided to rank all of Rhimes's leading ladies by how badass we think they are -- and you might be surprised to learn who lands in the top spot.
