X vs. Y

While a woman’s place was just starting to expand beyond that of the home and into the boardrooms during the 1960’s, it was apparent that we were moving forward as a gender.

My question today – would Napoleon and Illya have been able to work with a female Section One Number One? Obviously, it didn’t happened – UNCLE was strangely behind THRUSH in promoting women into positions of real power. Perhaps it was an underhanded way (by studio execs) of saying women were dangerous and underhanded, so for a woman to be in power, she must be evil or at least cultivating ulterior motives. Still, I can’t help but wonder, would either man have been able to not only accept a woman in a command position over them, but respect her as an equal as they did Waverly?

What say you, cousins?
