Anime - How it portrays women and how it affects its female viewers

I am working on a multi-genre project about women in anime and how females view and connect with these characters.
So I have 4 poll questions, each with the same list of 15 women.
Please take a moment to at least fill out the poll.
Also, please note that I only would like females to answer this - I'm specifically looking at how anime affects women.

(Sorry about a lot of repeat anime, but I tried to use series that the majority of people would know)

Edit: I am sorry I spelled Kagome's name wrong. I'll blame lack of sleep. Anyways, as far as I can tell, I can't edit the poll. ;_;

Edit 2: Its been pointed out that some people are having trouble answering because who they want is not on the list. I chose this list based on trying to have a wide (but still limited) varieties of types of anime girls. I'm not exactly looking to see if you feel like Winry because of her exact plot situation, but more because of the personality/character traits that you think she represents, whatever you might think she represents. If you know at least probably 12 of the characters/shows, then you are probably okay to answer.

Also, if you could please answer the first two questions from the list, then if you feel the need to kind of "write" in your answer in the comments for the last two, thats okay. I'd prefer from the list, but if you have a strong need not to, alright.

And while I am compiling and looking at these results, I will being stating that this was from a specific list - not open ended - so these characters may not be who the reader ultimately connects with, given a choice of every single anime out there.

I would also appreciate it if you would comment on why you chose your answer, like “I feel like connected to Ryoko because I’m in love with this guy, and I keep having to fight this obnoxious girl over him.” Or “I can’t understand Excel and why she is so crazy, I don’t think I’m anything like her.” Or even, “I’m the mother figure to all my friends, so I can really understand how Trisha feels, plus my boyfriend abandoned me to go off looking for something that’s never really been answered.”

If you would like to make the distinction that your answer is only applicable towards the anime or manga version specifically, please do.

Since this is for class, I would appreciate if everyone on my friends list could pimp this off on their lj. My goal is to get at least 100 responses, so that I can have a wide variety of data for my project.

Edit: I am sorry I spelled Kagome's name wrong. I'll blame lack of sleep. Anyways, as far as I can tell, I can't edit the poll. ;_;
