The 15 Best Female TV Characters of The Modern Day

Topanga Lawrence

Topanga Lawrence (Boy Meets World)

Topanga Lawrence was one of my first ever TV crushes, and it wasn’t solely based on her looks (which are also amazing, by the way). No, Topanga’s smart and loyal, and the relationship that she was able to have with Cory showed me that there’s more to romance than just finding the guy or girl that you think is hot. It’s about honesty and dedication and understanding, and Topanga, whether she was struggling with her parents’ divorce, helping out a friend, or trying to find a way to deal with that long walk to Pittsburgh, always remained true to herself and did the best that she could do.
