Charlie's Angels
In an article about women on webcams, I came across this quote about the television show:
'What works in favor of feminism at one end can become a disservice in the inept hands of the media.' Alan used the example of Charlie's Angels to make his point more clear: 'For maybe the first time in TV history, three women (or more if you count the cast changes) carried a hit show' he argues.
'It employed women in reasonably well paid lead roles and probably inspired young women to become actors. It also portrayed the women as empty-headed sex objects.' Years later, Alan pointed out, women routinely carry hit TV shows, but still 'only occasionally, a female character is drawn well enough to make her a feminist.'
