What would be the best way to fix the page?

At issue:

Badass Damsel is a snowclone of Badass and it is poorly distinguished from Badass In Distress. This crowner will decide its definition. Note that the options are not mutually exclusive.

This issue has been resolved and voting is closed.

Rename to make the relationship with Damsel in Distress more clear and avoid the "Badass" snowclone. (The tentative name is 'Damsel Out Of Distress' but this will be decided in an Alt Names crowner) The core definition will be "Damsel in Distress who escapes rather than needing to be rescued" .

Split off a Defiant Captive trope with the definition "captive who takes a defiant rather than meek or hysterical attitude". It will be gender-neutral because it applies both to Distressed Dude and Damsel in Distress.
