There are plenty of leading men and classical heroes adorning our televisual screens these days, more than ever with every passing year and developing show. We have our butt-kicking everymen (24′s Jack Bauer), our idealistic crime-solvers (the CSI franchise main men) and our morally ambiguous anti-heroes (Breaking Bad’s Walter White). They’re strong, they’re commanding and their arcs are compelling and addictive to watch.
However, the gender balance on TV remains on shaky ground – for every single female main character out there, there’s at least five more male ones. Even more unfortunate is the fact that while a male character can be all manners of morally grey and popular while a female character is more likely to either be a fan favourite who can do wrong or a loathed – justly or unjustly – woman.
