The Star Wars franchise is filled with more characters than pretty much any other IP, and while that was partly done to sell toys, that doesn't mean each character isn't important. The female characters in the franchise have long been pointed towards whenever someone suggests there aren't any strong female characters in science fiction. That's a load of bunk, especially if you know anything about Leia Organa, Mon Mothma, Ahsoka Tano, or any of the plethora of independent and powerful women found throughout the Star Wars franchise.
While there are some excellent examples of women in other groups, the women of the Rebel Alliance are easily some of the most fascinating out there. Princess Leia may take center stage on that front, but there's also General Syndulla, Sabine Wren, and a host of others fans have loved for decades. Still, there are a lot of great female characters, and it's impossible to know everything about them.
There are plenty of things you didn't know about women in the Rebel Alliance, and this list aims to solve that problem. Check out the items below detailing some of the more interesting details about the women of the Rebel Alliance, and be sure to upvote your favorites before you head out to binge-watch as much Star Wars as is humanly possible!
