How Some Women’s Reactions to a Female Doctor on Doctor Who Reveal Internalized Misogyny

When I first saw the trailer announcing Jodie Whittaker as Doctor Who's 13th Doctor, I got chills and goosebumps. It felt like something big was happening. Something momentous, not just for this sci-fi show I loved, but for pop culture in general. Hell, for the world.

Netflix, who has really leaned into doing weird stuff well, is now adapting Umbrella Academy for TV. Rejoice!
