She took care of her sister after their parents died. She obviously didnt let that responsibility fall into the hands of the wrong people. She had to grow up at a young age and be strong for Queenie.
She became an Auror- a dark wizard catcher. She isnt afraid to run into the face of danger instead of away from it. She followed Newt when she KNEW it could end in death.
She held her own in a duel against Grendelwald. Not something many wizards can probably claim to have done. Except maybe - the GREAT Albus Dumbledore.
She has a heart of gold but a stone cold resolve in bettering wizardkind and proving herself time and time again worthy of the term - heroine.
Tell me again how Porpentina Goldstein is not a strong, badass, independent woman.
Dont worry, I’ll wait.
