As a young 20-something woman I've grown up with some very heroic role models in the media that I happily let permeate my reality. It's actually frighteningly easy for me to forget that my Mom's generation didn't have this same blessing. While I had the fierce Buffy Summers and the brilliant Sydney Bristow, she had 'cute' beach bunny Gidget. Well, Gidget's a pretty girl, but I'm just not very certain how much respect she commands.
