The ladies at The Mary Sue shared a quote from the awesome Gina Torres, star of Firefly and Suits, about the industry's sexism and sci-fi.

I walk into a room, and for this industry, I'm impossibly tall. When they find it hard to pair you up with the opposite sex, then what's left for a woman? Either you're the ball-buster or the not-so-attractive girlfriend standing by the lead. I mean, traditionally not so attractive. Because you have your starlets and then you have their best friends who are these character actresses. When you fall within the cracks, you thank God for sci-fi, because they'll give you a gun, and they'll say, 'Go over there and conquer that world. You kick some ass, girl!'

Basically, Torres is awesome.

    Picture Gina Torres in her costume from Firefly. Strong, proud, tough, kick ass. That IS beautiful. Take her out of the Firefly costume and she's still strong, proud, tough and kick ass - but in a pretty necklace. By my definition, strong, proud, tough and kick ass equal beautiful.
