In honor of International Women's Day, RadioTimes.com celebrated with a list of some of television's strongest women. And it's no surprise to us that Special Agent/Doctor/Alien Fighter Extraordinaire Dana Scully topped the list:
Whether she was tackling aliens, killers, government conspiracies or Fox Mulder’s credulity, the medical doctor and FBI agent took it all in her stride, often simultaneously battling some unfortunate hairdos. Smart, courageous and resourceful, Scully was never afraid to say what she thought – or back up a friend.
Keep up the great work, Scully. You make us all proud.

On the first round it's up against The West Wing. People can vote by "Liking" their page and typing in their entry on this post.
Voting lasts for only one day; so, this particular round will end after today, Thursday, March 8. Breaking Bad is also involved in the competition, but voting for it hasn't take place yet.
Thanks Luke for the heads up!
