This final chapter investigates how, following the immense popularity of the science fiction drama The X-Files (1993–2002, reboot 2016–2018), critics argued for a link between young women watching the show and pursuing an education and career in STEM because of Dana Scully. It will also consider Stieg Larsson’s Lisbeth Salander as well as Walter Tevis’ Beth Harmon who are intellectually gifted redheads, one of whom hides her gingerness and the other is known for her masterful chess prowess. During the same period of time, the rise of the Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff, has injected female perspective into the Marvel Universe. In all cases, these are redheads who work against the sexualized stereotype to exemplify women as active problem solvers in their worlds.
