(Picture: Lucasfilm via AP) Back in 1977 it might have seemed that Princess Leia was the only female in the galaxy, apart from Aunt Beru. For the entirety of the classic original trilogy only a handful of women shared the screen with Carrie Fisher and while the prequel trilogy introduced many more – including of course Luke and Leia’s mother Padme – and the animated Clone Wars and Rebels brought us leading female characters in Ahsoka Tano, Hera Syndula and Sabine Wren – the balance of the Force was heavily tipped in favour of the boys.
