Scheherazade from A Thousand and One Nights. She enchanted a demented Shah from murdering countless women by reading stories to him for a thousand one nights.  Each story had a moral to it so at the end of a thousand and one nights, the shah regains his sanity.  A true heroine!!

For those who aren’t familiar with her, Baba Yaga is a figure from Russian folklore, an old woman who often flies about in a mortar and pestle (another great visual there), and who is known to occasionally eat children. She lives in the forest, in a hut perched atop chicken legs. (The Wikipedia link has a fascinating section about the possible origins of the hut on chicken legs.)
