The importance of the Scully character and The X-Files as a whole cannot be understated. The Scully Effect is a thing: nearly two-thirds (63%) of American women who work in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) today say that Dana Scully served as a role model. In other words: as one of the first outspoken powerful women on camera, with determined and highly regarded skills, she inspired a whole generation.
Fun fact: The X-Files and FACTS are both turning 25 this year, so this will be an extra special occasion!
