- Women in Sci-Fi, the Teknowomen BlogEllen Ripley Ripley Ripley Ripley So good she lead the way in 4 Alien films She was so strong a woman in the films she was cloned back from the dead to complete the Quadrilogy. She must be The strongest female character in a leading role she would beat Sarah Connor and John McLean in a ammo and vest competition
- Women in Sci-Fi, the Teknowomen BlogRipley from the Alien movies. Hands down. Case closed. She's not a female character in a sci-fi movie, she's a character who just happens to be female. No excuse is made for her gender, nor is there particularly much reference to it, unlike in so much Hollywood product. Ripley is Ripley, first and foremost. She survives, and indeed thrives, by dint of who she is as a person, not as a woman. She is a proper badass, but is human, believeable and real. Any character like Ripley would be noteworthy in 2014, but in 1979 it was remarkable.
- Women in Sci-Fi, the Teknowomen BlogI'm not sure if 'Another Earth' really counts as science fiction, but if it does I think Brit Marling's character Rhoda is pretty special because she is not a science fiction hero. The plot is carried by a big mistake she makes at the beginning of the movie which continues to pay for, and the backdrop of 'the other Earth' is the only beacon for her. She is empowered when she is selected to go to the other Earth but ultimately has to sacrifice that, too, in order totally purge herself of guilt for her mistake. The film is kind of about her redemption; it's not about her being kick-ass or asserting her authority in a man's world, she is just a human being who made a mistake - I think it's quite rare and refreshing to see a woman in this kind of role.
