The New York Time's list of TVís Female Enforcers. This New York Times slideshow highlights the many female "enforcers" now portrayed on television, with a nod to our beloved heroine.

Hard to say she did it "first" when the list also includes Diana Rigg, but yes, she's deservedly in the pantheon.
Yeah the title is a bit off, given the history of female enforcers. I'll tweat it.
Not sure about the word 'enforcer' (though I suppose it's strictly correct for most of them) but aside from that, yay, Buffy's on another list ! ;)

Presumably this has an accompanying article ? Cos the blurbs seemed bordering on nonsensical at times not to mention inaccurate/ill-placed - talking about characters who "...dress as if they were going for a run on a cold day." next to a picture of Gabrielle Anwar from 'Burn Notice' particularly jarred since she seems contractually obliged to spend half of each episode in a bikini (it is set in Miami I suppose).

I don't know how many episodes of Burn Notice you've watched, but Fiona is almost never in a bikini.

All of them. She quite often wears bikini bottoms with a sari, we've seen her in a bikini several times and in a variety of slinky dresses when undercover or providing a distraction. There isn't a particular effort made to cover up is my point, the opposite in fact.

Fair enough, 'half of each episode' was a bit of an exaggeration though ;).
I have found the character of Ziva David interesting, since she plays against type with the other two pretty boys of NCIS, and also against the goth girl of Pauly Perrette's Abby. Interestingly more, Abby is right now the favorite character on television, bar none.
Shouldn't Cagney and Lacey have been in there somewhere?
Dana5140, while I absolutely adore Abby and she is one of my favourite characters currently on TV, what survey determined she was "the favourite character on TV?" - just curious.
