I've been trying to figure out why some people think that
Lynch's work, Twin Peaks in particular, is sexist.
 
Male characters predominate, but that is fair enough I think for
a cop show with a 50's feel.  Civilians seem to be almost
evenly divided by sex.  Young males are just as dumb as the
young females. But this is one lack. There are no strong middle-
aged females.  But I figure this is a necessary plot device.
If we had a strong mature woman in Twin Peaks (say like Jessica
in Murder She Wrote) she'd have the town's problem's solved in
an hour!
