This is something I realized the other day, it seems like in film and TV, if there is some team that is specifically identified as “FBI” it is almost certainly going to be headed by a woman.
V - Erica Evans
Fringe - Olivia Dunham
Profiler - Samantha Waters, Rachel Burke
Silence of the Lambs, etc. - Clarice Starling
X-Files - Dana Scully
That might not seem all that long/impressive a list (though I’m probably missing one or two), but how many CIA, Quantico, CTU, etc., female leads have you seen?
