…we still root for her. That’s because it is the thesis of…we still root for her. That’s because it is the thesis of the movie that Elle Woods is an underdog. This is the thesis of every movie featuring a strong female character as lead, that women are automatically deserving of our support, because all women are underdogs.
…bly must account for disadvantage. This is why intersectionality has become so vital to its growth. Feminism is about people, in all their innumerable flaws, and the strong female character is not a person — she is a new mythology.

Needham himself, though pilloried in the Western press for his opinions on the controversy of U.S. use of biological weapons during the Korean War, remained a highly lauded scientist for years after the ISC report.
