Galadriel in LOTR...

...was a good example of a strong female character. She was wise, respected, and serene. She displayed her strength in her interactions with the Fellowship, connecting with them mentally and emotionally. She leaves the mighty warrior Boromir shaken and stammering after reading his soul. This is power. She rejected the Ring of power, even though facing immense temptation.This was inspired.
Unfortunately, in The Hobbit, we have the "girl power" nonsense that a strong woman literally has to be a strong woman, a 'kick-butt chick', who can do everything a man can do...and better! This to me is not inspired. It made for boring characters that felt shoe-horned into the story.
