A hero/heroine is someone who fights for human rights in general. Expanding on general "heroism", a Shero is a man or woman who stands up specifically for female rights.

In order to be considered as a Shero, one must DO something to help the women's cause, or be a historical figure who was unconventional in their thinking for that time of what females can do.

Feminism is the belief in equality for all women; sheroism is the action.

A man or woman who fights for women's issues, but usually used for women.

An obnoxious word that is built off of the word "hero", which is not native to English and etymologically unrelated to "he" and "she". "Hero", strictly speaking, is gender neutral now and "shero" specifies gender, contrary to feminist efforts to make language gender-neutral; way to shoot yourselves in the foot, feminists.
"Heroine" can be used in a positive way; drop the "shero" and use "heroine" to describe a strong, intelligent woman and the connotations will change. Or just use "hero" if you don't want to differentiate.

A female lead character who kicks ass.

A shero is different from a heroine in that a heroine is merely the main female character, to be a shero one must do a certain amount of kicking ass and taking down names. Lucy from a Tale of Two Cities and Barbara from Night of the Living Dead were both heroines. Sheros they most certainly were not.
Lara Croft is the shero of Tomb Raider.
Dude, Aeon Flux is the freakin' awesomest shero of all time!
Jessica Alba epitomized a shero as Max in Dark Angel.

A Stand alone word meaning, "Bringer of Destruction", but could also be used as a name. "Shero" meaning Destruction, starting from it's roots as a kid who was young, wanted to bring the world together. But then after a tragedy occurred, his feelings turned dark and brought destruction every where he went. The people with the name Shero ( Ultra Super Rare Name By the Way ) are usually doomed and will have a horrible future awaiting them.
Example 1:
Guy 1: Why are you doing this?
Guy 2: Because i will bring 'Shero' to this world, and destroy the world with it! i shall bring Destruction to it's place!

Example 2:
Guy 1: Stop it Shero! This isn't you!
Shero: my name means Destruction, and people who's name are Shero are bound to create havoc in this world, im just following my destiny.
