I started out with the Star Trek books, already being a fan of the series. Once I'd read all of those, I started expanding. And one of my first finds was Honor Harrington. (The series as DRM-Free multiformat e-books)
I was in love. Here was a female character like me, with whom I could identify! ( Why Honor Harrington is Awesome )
Based on the Honor Among Enemies cover by David B. Mattingly. All I did was crop it and add text.
And, remember, four of the books in this series (and several others by David Weber) are available for free in the Baen Free Library, here.
Fandoms of any size are encouraged, any female character you've seen hate against (even if it's just from a few people) is eligible. You can write meta or fic, make graphics, share fanmixes, or basically anything else that's celebrating the female character you've claimed. There is a limit of three claims per language per character (so, three people could create for a character in English, and three more in Spanish, and three more in Russian, etc.). There are a lot of women characters out there who get hated for some pretty misogynistic reasons. Let's spread some love!
I will be doing Honor Harrington, because she was my favorite fictional character when I was a teen and very important to me, and I just recently (not for the first time) heard her dismissed as a caricature and a man with boobs.

My parents are professional photographers, and their studio Haugen's Galleri has been completely digital for over five years now. So they've got these incredible cameras and computers and graphics programs, and it took Mom like two seconds per image to make them into icons. She threw in an image from my High School senior portraits, too. (Yeah, I know it's been eight years since they were taken, but I haven't changed that much and it's not like you can see my face anyway.) It's my new default icon. Isn't it pretty?
Anyway, here they are:
