WOMEN AND SCIFI

Where Are All the Women Time Travellers?

Women have been decidedly ignored when it comes to time travelling. As I was thinking about this I came across Anna Smith's recent article on this very topic in The Guardian. Time travelling women are indeed rare, especially in sci-fi film. Smith notes in particular that Rachel McAdams has had three roles in time travelling movies, only to remain firmly rooted in the her own timeline in each one.
