Dr. Leonard McCoy might have been one of the first great physicians on the small screen, but Dana Scully was one of the best, and one of the first amazing women to step in to that role. Today’s Doctober post on Dr. Dana Scully is near and dear to me as the truth is (out there), no the truth is she is probably one of the female role models that originally inspired me to want to be in the field of medicine. This woman just rocks it as a doctor.
The X-Files was one of my favorite shows growing up. And while I will admit that teenage Lilith had a huge crush on Fox Mulder, I also admired Dana Scully for many reasons. While there are more and more women entering the science fields these days, there is still a gender gap with regards to many aspects of those fields. While I don’t want to bore you all contemplating Scully’s salary, I will say I very much admire this woman’s strength, intelligence, and success. FBI Special Agent Dr. Dana Katherine Scully is one tough cookie that anyone would love to have as their partner.
