Rachel Luttrell on Womanhood in SciFi

"The dichotomy between Queens and Mothers ... hmmm... the thing is, Wraith Queens and Mother Teyla aren't that different. They both lead. They're both fierce.  Both will rip your throat out if you come after the ones they love. Teyla is a character who can take someone down without a firearm; she fights. She talks instead. She's a strong, female role model.  I don't want little girls to grab sticks and beat on people, but younger folk need to know they're strong and fabulous, but feminine and intelligent."
