Link: How Wynonna Earp Became One of the Most Feminist Sci-Fi Shows on TV
Midway through its second season, Wynonna Earp is tackling a storyline that action-based series – let alone any based on comic books – rarely showcase: the titular heroine getting pregnant, dealing with it, and still kicking butt.

It speaks volumes that 20 years have gone by and we’re still talking about that show. People see it for what it was, which is groundbreaking. I can’t even pretend that Buffy didn’t influence me, but I don’t want to say Wynonna is derivative. I hope it’s not.
