I’ve written before about the power of science fiction to inject ideas into the mainstream while driving the conversation forward. Lately, one of the bigger issues in the wider cultural dialogue has been gender equality. As a man, I don’t want to weigh in as an authority, though I will admit that my wife, who is a woman, is objectively a much better person than I am.
However, I don’t want to subject my wife to the blogosphere, so I’ll point a spotlight at someone better equipped to handle it: The Doctor.
Specifically, The Fifth, Peter Davison.
