Which role is the 'female Hamlet'?


I see this phrase being applied to so many characters, what would you say is the ultimate female character from a play/musical?

I would say that Amanda Wingfield from The Glass Menagerie and Blanche DuBois from A Streetcar Named Desire would have to be on any short list of contenders.
