* Miss Barbora Terebová from ''Literature/{{Saturnin}}'' is an attractive, modern and sportive young woman, the narrator's LoveInterest and a Spirited Young Lady. The book is set in a time when young ladies had more freedom already (GenteelInterbellumSetting in Czechoslovakia, though one small detail hints it could be during UsefulNotes/WarldWarII), but the narrator does take note of her not-quite-ladylike comments on his ability to play tennis.

* ''Literature/ThePortraitOfALady'' by Creator/HenryJames, published in 1880--81: Isabel Archer (the lady from the title) is a young American woman who is beautiful and intelligent, and very well aware of that. She leaves America for Britain in company of her estranged aunt. She enjoys travelling, and her ambition is to see the world and find find her own purpose in life. Isabel values her independence and at times she seems to act independent just to prove that she can. After the death of her uncle Mr. Touchett, Isabel inherits a large sum of money. She feels that wealth has both given her more freedom, but also taken away the specific kind of independence she had when she was just a rather poor girl from a good family. She is a very charming young lady, and almost every male character is enchanted with her or falls in love with her.

** Henrietta Stackpole is Isabel's close friend who works as a journalist for the New York Interviewer, and she is quite serious about her job. She has no money except from her job, yet she supports her widowed sister's children and pays their school-bills. She is good-humored, energetic and extremely opinionated. Some English characters are surprised by her bluntness (or even rudeness) with which she expresses herself. Isabel admires that Henrietta is completely independent of men, a woman. At the same time, Henrietta is decidedly pretty and an elegant young woman.

* In ''Literature/ARoomWithAView'', Lucy Honeychurch is a naive but somewhat adventurous young woman who has less inhibitions than her cousin Charlotte and enjoys the way in which George Emerson and his father both flout convention. Although she is living in an era in which women could have slightly more freedom and independence than previously, she is still chafing at the carryover from the Victorian times manifesting in some of those around her - particularly her stuffy fiance Cecil.

She may also be a doctor's daughter, and have helped him enough to be qualified as a nurse or midwife.

* Though the Spirited Young Lady is usually a heroine or positive supporting character, negative versions of this trope are possible. Only add such examples if it is clear that they are treated as spirited young ladies in universe. If you're adding a villain or anti-hero as an example, please explain how she fits this trope rather than being just a period version of another trope.
