Women of Science Fiction Television

If you go look, you can find the original source of this image, which was a comparison between this set of female character sand those of the female characters that are seen on prime time television dramas and comedies that are not specifically related to speculative fiction. Arguments aside about whether medical mystery shows are speculative fiction or not, I think it was something of an unfair comparison, as we can find well rounded female characters in those types of shows just like we can find flat, sex and relationship obsessed female characters in science fiction shows.

I would like to see a factual study done, that does a genre comparison of female characters in speculative fiction over traditional drama and fiction, just to see where it does fall but in the mean time lets simply celebrate how awesome science fiction and fantasy is from a gender equality perspective (chainmail bikinis aside).
