Episode 13 of Pop Culture Case Study - Alien and Female Empowerment

In this episode, Dave discusses the "Strong Female Character."  Is it a good or a bad thing?  Can it be both?  In order to do this, he watches maybe the original strong female character, or at the very least, the first female action hero badass.  Ellen Ripley in Alien is definitely the original female action hero.  He also details research on gender inequity in film and television.  You know, keepin it light :)
