Women of Television

This graphic makes you think, but how true is it? When I watch TV, it's usually crime shows, in which successful, independent woman are over-represented as cops, lawyers, scientists, politicians, and criminals. Maybe it all depends on the shows you choose to watch. Link -via @John Farrier

I think these examples were cherry-picked, but I do believe there is something to the point. In aggregate, you will undoubtedly find more strong-minded females in sci-fi than in prime time. ESPECIALLY if (as the graphic does) you include reality tv. Seriously...Snooki? So there are examples in prime time that WE could cherry-pick, but on the whole, the graphic has a point.

Interesting, but it seems like they set out to make a point and then looked for evidence that supported their point while ignoring evidence that didn't.
