    Some people grew up with damsels in distress as their media model of how women worked; some people grew up with Emma Peel and Ellen Ripley.

  • Peel and Ripley were rare exceptions in a media environment full of damsels. And you certainly don’t even need those few exceptions to know that there is something seriously wrong with women only ever being damsels.

  • RogerBW

    Sure. They just were the ones that made it plain to me that there was no reason all the other portrayals of women should be so dull.
    (But then I know men who genuinely prefer, as partners, women who are incompetent at anything except looking pretty. I find them creepy in the extreme.)
