Gina Torres in her Firefly costume

Joss Whedon fans raise your hands . . . I’m waving back. It probably comes as no surprise that I love Whedon’s women. Strong, confident, and astonishingly kick-ass. One example is Gina Torres from the futuristic tale Firefly. Firefly didn’t last very long when it was on, but I hear it will be on again. Every movie and TV show should have a Firefly-class woman made in the mold of Torres as Zoë Washburne.
