Sky.com quizzed 2,000 people for their views.
The results show that what society defines as a 'hero' and a 'heroine' seems to differ greatly.
The majority of the top 10 women chosen, such as Diana, Princess of Wales and Amy Winehouse, seem to portray a certain sense of vulnerability or have had to fight against some adversity in their lives.
By comparison, the male heroes are generally much stronger, and with the exception of Churchill, are known for their talent, rather than their personality or the impact they have had on the world.
While we seem to admire male icons, we seem to need to identify with our female ones.
