St. Xena: 30 Days of Female Awesome: Day 1 »

1. Favorite Lead Female Character

Dana Scully. Scully was smart (she’s a medical doctor!), brave, strong. She followed Mulder, she led Mulder, she solved problems. She was a professional, and while at times she wanted love/a family, Finding A Man was not her sole priority.

In many ways, she embodied the messages of The X-Files in a way Mulder did not. The show told us, “Trust no one” and “The truth is out there.” As a skeptic, Scully didn’t just trust blindly; she asked questions, did research, used logic and reason. She believed there was a truth out there.

Women don’t often get to be skeptics, so it was refreshing to see a character who wasn’t some New Agey hippy dippy lady. Scully had a brain and got to use it.

She’s had many imitators, some successful, some not. I’m glad I got to her know her as a teenager, just when I needed good role models.
