James Bond & Friends – Episode 0070: Bond Women of the 1980s

James Bond & Friends – Episode 0070: Bond Women Of The 1980s

The latest episode of James Bond & Friends is now available on Apple Podcasts and elsewhere.

Were the 1980s a golden era for independent women in the Bond film series?

For this episode, we reflect on the Bond Women of the 1980s, who were far from the gun-arm hanging damsels in distress the series had been criticized for in earlier decades. From the crossbow-wielding Melina set out on a mission of revenge, and ending with Pam’s strong-willed CIA pilot, we pick over the characters of the ’80s, choose our favourites and shine a spotlight on some of the less-celebrated individuals. We also take a detour to chat about how the ’80s saw a shift in the balance of power on Bond posters.
