Gazza – The Talent, the Tears and the Road to Perdition Part Two of Two

Honor Blackman, A Stylish and Magnificent Woman - Part two of two

Written by Laurence Marcus

/Honor Blackman Gale The Avengers Hamlet


There is no doubt that Cathy Gale helped change the perception of women on British television forever. "When I started, men were still of the opinion that women would always be seen as the weaker sex due to their lack of strength. I was the first woman to be seen defending herself and so illustrated that this was no longer the case. Despite being glamorous and witty, Cathy was also Steed's intellectual equal.

Written by Laurence Marcus
Honor Blackman  1

Very few actresses have ever been given a role that redefines the public's vision of women on television. That in itself would be a significant achievement; but as Cathy Gale in The Avengers, Honor Blackman not only altered that public perception and re-characterized the role, she also single-handedly kick-started the whole 1960s 'second wave' feminist movement.
