(I'm making this thread purely about the Bond series. I don't want any broader political/social debate, nor do I want to read 50 pages of social justice warriors and mens right activists throwing mud at each other)
There are some fallacies when discussing this subject. It's not fair to single Bond films out. Many films from decades ago portrayed women in a shallow and objective way. The Bond films in the 60's had more empowering female characters than many other films of the time. However, the Moore era was quite regressive. Women were largely just gags and sex appeal. I didn't feel offended - moreso that it was just cheesy and cringeworthy. The prudishness of the Dalton era was probably an overcorrection, but I think the Brosnan films handled this well by showing how times are changing while still letting Bond be Bond.
I don't think anyone (aside from a few extreme people) is asking for Bond to give up philandering and become a foot-washing feminist. But we have every reason to expect Bond films to be real films with real characters. Not every female lead has to be like assertive, agile, powerful and Bond's equal in every respect. There's nothing wrong with well-made traditionally feminine characters like Tatiana Romanova. But stupid characters like Rosie Carver and Mary Goodnight are where I draw the line.
