At the Winter TCA’s on Tuesday, Wagner spoke about the female superheroes seen on television today, and she was not completely enthusiastic about the portrayal of them. According to TV Insider, she said:
“It’s mixed. It’s great that women are now allowed to be heroes. But I am also concerned when I see that a lot of the modern day ideas of a female superhero are just yesterday’s male hero in some tights. The whole point of having a woman in a leadership position of any kind is to hopefully bring the feminine aspect of wisdom and intelligence to whatever they’re attempting to do.”
There are more female superheroes on television today thanks to shows CBS’ Supergirl and CW series like Arrow, The Flash, and the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow.
Females are doing more than staying at home or working behind a desk. Do you agree with Lindsay Wagner’s opinion? Tell us what you think.
