No matter how long I thought, I just couldn't think of a good way to start this, so I'll just get into it. Where are all the female werewolves? Not something I noticed until recently, but of all the commonly done monsters, that must be the one with the least females. Even in the rare cases of female werewolves they never seem to be important characters, or even characters we are supposed to like. Off the top of my head the only example of a female werewolf protagonist I can remember is from the Ginger snaps movies.
Is it a sexist issue? Of the more established monsters in our culture, werewolves...
I recently finished a show called Strange Empire, and I'm not really sure how I felt about it. The following rambling trying to disguise itself as a review is my attempt at sorting out my feelings.
I was in the middle of iconning a Western-ish series and needed background noise (something to half-watch while I edited stuff). I'd already gone through all the Western movies Netflix had that interested me, so I decided to start a show called Strange Empire that had been on my watch-this-eventually list for ages. It fit my Western requirement, looked like it was about badass women, so why not?
