The Women of Grand Theft Auto V: Volume 2

*That's me on the left!
I finally finished Grand Theft Auto V. Just so you know, I think that it was executed beautifully using three protagonists, and I look forward to how they expand on it in the future with DLC. I didn't start making this list to say that the women in Grand Theft Auto V are all poorly written and I hate the game.
After GTA V launched, there were many articles about misogynistic elements in the game and instead of writing another article about how those elements made me feel as a woman, I decided it was best to deal with it in a different way. If you want to talk about how female characters are portrayed in a video game, how about actually talking about the female characters in the game?
As I played through the main story and a majority of the side-quests, I paid attention to the females I encountered and how they factored into the Grand Theft Auto universe. This list is more about observation then criticism. If you don't like it or don't understand it and think it's crap, I can deal with that, but it also means that you're not the person I made this list for. If you missed the first half of this list, then you can check it out here.
22. IAA Detective - The Anal Rapistcomments powered by Disqus
We only see her during the scene right before you kidnap Ferdinand Karimov from the IAA. She is clearly the most badass interrogator in the room, threatening to anal rape the poor guy with a flashlight. She does offer to use some lube first.
23. Maude - The Backwoods Bounty Hunter
A large, sassy woman who gives Trevor bounties so he can help her track down bond jumpers.
24. Officer Jernigan - The Reluctant Law Enforcer
So I looked all over the game for Sergeant Vasquez, the female cop pictured on the limited edition GTA V poster I received when I pre-ordered Grand Theft Auto many moons ago, but I did not find her. Instead I found Officer Jernigan, drinking a latte outside of the Los Santos Police Department complaining about her job.
25. Sue Murry - Political Candidate
One of two political candidates running for Governor of San Andreas. She represents the satirical embodiment of all liberal candidates while her opponent Jock Cranley is the complete opposite. You can hear her and her campaign promotions on several radio stations periodically throughout the game.
