As you may have noticed, we at Complex love sexy women who kick ass. Turns out, beauties who kick ass for a cause are even better. After all, with a modern day Joan of Arc on our side, we know that if we’re ever caught smuggling party favors out of Thailand, she’ll bring down the entire judicial system in no time. And she'll still be the hottest woman around.

In the regime-defying spirit of this week's release Red Dawn, a remake in which Isabel Lucas and Adrianne Palicki play two very good-looking guerrilla fighters who battle against evil communists who've invaded a town in Washington, we bring you the 25 hottest female revolutionaries in movies, sexy female characters who’ve risen against political and societal orders for everything from freedom of speech to free-spirited sex.
