NPR Recognizes the Power of Action Heroines

Click HERE to listen to or read this NPR story that addresses the issue of what happens when Hollywood chooses to replace male roles in films with female actresses. (Hint: You can either be funny or tough.) Also, I'll be seeing "SALT" soon and posting a review here as well as some writing about all the action heroines presented to us this summer.


  1. Just discovered your blog and absolutley love it. I'm a fangirl too who aspires to be like many of the action heroines you've discussed so far. Loved that you featured Claudia Black! Interested to know your thoughts on Starbuck (Katee Sackhoff) in the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica.

  2. I'm sad to say that I haven't seen any BG yet! Just this week I am getting around watching SG Universe 1.5 which was sent to me by the promotional team. But thanks to your recommendation, I'll have to check out BG ASAP!
