Daughters of Ripley

Over at AMC this week, I’m writing about the epochal science fiction character that is Ellen Ripley, and what she meant for strong, competent women (who don’t have to sex you up to get the job done) in science fiction film. Yes, female characters in science fiction have been on my mind recently, why do you ask?

As always, I encourage your thoughts and comments on the subject over on the AMC site, where each of your comments is viewed with the reverence it deserves.
