->Its so odd to see Tegan not approach somebody with her usual bad attitude and filthy mouth but I guess even Janet Fielding couldn’t bring herself to throw her weight around in the presence of a living legend like [[SpellMyNameWithAThe The]] Creator/NicholasCourtney. She saves all of her bile for Mawdryn and in some hastily scripted scenes comes across as a right old cow ...Rather wonderfully the one person she cannot brow beat is the Brigadier and he casually (almost perversely) [[StayInTheKitchen throws as much sexism her way as possible]]. Although Tegan ([[WagTheDirector or probably Janet Fielding]]) has to have the last word and quietly mutters ‘[[BigStupidDooDooHead chauvinist]]’ when he is out of sight. It makes me wonder if that for all her objections to the contrary if Tegan is the sort of self punishing individual that would subconsciously seek out a chauvinist to marry.

->One of criticisms for this movie is the portrayal of women; mainly Amanda. No longer are the women in [[Creator/WoodyAllen (Woody) Allen’s]] movies just slightly neurotic or finnicky but now straight up evil harpies... in the past Allen was much more able to take as well as he gave. In ''Film/AnnieHall'', Annie may have issues, but Alvy was just as bad if not worse. In ''Anything Else'', Amanda is evil and Jerry is [[CanonSue as innocent as an angel.]]

->The most toe-curlingly awful moments of [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS9E5TheTimeMonster}} The Time Monster]] are where Ruth is made a feminist to make her comically annoying. But that's nothing compared to this story, which contrives to have the Doctor [[YouGetMeCoffee be a sexist ass]] to Sarah just so she can complain about it. The problem here should be obvious -- the show goes out of its way to make a major character sexist just so it can get in a line complaining about sexism. In other words, the show's reaction to feminism is actually to [[NotHelpingYourCase make its major characters more sexist]].

->As far as feminism has come in recent decades, there are still any number of pre-conceptions that exist and are casually perpetuated. Women in positions of authority are particularly likely to be stereotyped. In fact, observers are likely to use the behaviour of women in authority to reinforce and validate their own sexist beliefs.\\\
Indeed, no matter how a woman in authority acts, there’s likely to be a stereotype to account for it. Concerned about those under her? She’s a '[[MotherBear mother]].' Aggressive? She’s a '[[DoesNotLikeMen ball-buster]].' Intuitive? '[[HystericalWoman Overly emotional.]]' Logical? '{{Ice queen}}.' It is very easy to fall into the trap of playing into sexist stereotypes because there are so damn many of them. One could easily justify [[DependingOnTheWriter the various zig-zags]] taken by the ''Voyager'' writing staff in characterising as attempts to avoid various prat falls. However, swerving to avoid one stereotype means you wind up hitting another.

->...Moreover, in the not-so-distant past, the belief that women routinely make up rape charges often led to appalling treatment of victims. However, in challenging what author and law professor Susan Estrich has called “the myth of the lying woman,” feminists have been creating their own counter-myth: that of the woman who never lies.

->I don't understand why the ''{{Series/Smallville}}'' writers don't get this. Yes, ComicBook/LoisLane has to be a "strong" character. Yes, she has to be emotionally tough and borderline brilliant in order to attract someone like Superman. Her strength makes her stand out. But why, oh why, do the writers equate acting like a cow to complete strangers]] with personal strength. I didn't see a tough woman forging her own way in the world here, I saw a [[SpoiledBrat whiny, overgrown toddler]] browbeating someone because she was the one who wanted to [[ShoppingMontage make stops along the way]] and so was late for her reservation.
