someone has to save our skins

I'm looking for suggestions for science fiction/fantasy/fairy-tales/etc. for young(ish) girls. I'm especially interested in epic stories that are similar to the ones I devoured when I was that age (Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, superhero comics, Dragonlance, etc.), but which are centered on female protagonists and which don't reinforce sexist social messaging about female passivity or objectification.

The young lady in question hasn't technically been born yet, so unfortunately I can't give you anything more specific about her tastes than this rather vague request. Thank you!
