7. Pam Grier

While she’s best known to modern audiences as the too-cool-for-school flight attendant who’s brave enough to take on Samuel L. Jackson as a mob boss in Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown, Pam has been an action heroine for close to 40 years! Her most iconic roles include the blaxplotation films Coffy, (where she plays a vigilante seeking revenge for her younger sister’s death) and 1974’s Foxy Brown (which had a similar revenge theme), a movie that arguably influenced Quentin Tarantino's work!
