It’s been 12 years since the Gilmore Girls series finale aired on television and for many the show remains one of the best series about mother-daughter relationships ever produced. But which Gilmore Girls character would you be? 

Gilmore Girls, which focuses on the awesome mother-daughter relationship between Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel), is beloved by telly addicts all over the world thanks to its fast-paced dialogue, plethora of pop culture references, and ability to make us laugh as well as cry.

Even more compelling? The fact that it has been lauded as one of the most ballsy and feminist shows on television, of course.

“I want to live my life so that I’ll be able to read an in-depth biography about myself in later years and not puke.”

So said Paris, but it’s a phrase that sums up every single woman in the Gilmore Girls. Because, while they are all very different characters, they each have one important thing in common; they’re never willing to compromise or settle. Ever.

As previously noted in our ’The incredible life lessons we learned from the Gilmore Girls article, the women of Stars Hollow have big goals and dreams and are always working towards them in their own ways throughout the series. Lorelai dreams of running her own inn, Rory dreams of being Christiane Amanpour, Lane dreams of rocking out to loud music, Paris dreams of… well, of being the best at everything.

The thing about Gilmore Girls is that their fearless female characters are never afraid to think big and they are constantly striving towards their goals. And, even when these plans don’t work out, the show stresses the importance of continuing to dream.

As a result, many of us have wondered (and don’t you dare pretend you haven’t) which of the incredible women in this show we’re most like. In fact, it’s probably been the number one question plaguing fans in the 12 years since the series finale aired on television in May, 2007. (It was later rebooted on Netflix.)

Could it be funny and fast-talking Lorelai, determined and conscientious Rory, or the indomitable force that is Emily Gilmore (Kelly Bishop)?
