is a grassroots nonprofit organization, just getting off the ground. Their mission is to promote the positive portrayal of females in the media, powered solely by the viewers who love them. They are set to launch their website this month, and have chosen their first monthly honoree to be Special Agent Dana Scully, MD. For nine years, 202 episodes and two feature films, fans watched as she and her partner Fox Mulder asked the tough questions, risked their lives for the truth and each other, and finally found their happiness. Agent Scully is intelligent, clever, educated, courageous, and has set the tone for countless strong female characters that came after her.

) but with a fun twist. They are organizing a virtual screening of one episode of The X-Files, plus the 1998 feature film, The X-Files: Fight the Future. For your charitable donation of at least $5, you will receive a link to a chat room in which X-philes across the globe will simultaneously watch the Scully-centric episode from Season 7 entitled “all things”. After a 15 minute intermission, we will then screen the entire feature film. This event will take place on Saturday, April 30, 2011 at 8 PM EST.
Over the course of this roughly three hour event, we will have trivia, fun facts, some transcribed commentary from the dvd and the behind the scenes book, deleted scenes to view, even a drinking game for those over 21.
Additionally, we are auctioning off an playbill from David Duchovny’s off-Broadway play "Break of Noon", autographed by Fox Mulder himself. The signature is authentic; we can show you the pictures to prove it. (YES, MARIKOLOGY MET MULDER.
Additionally, if you donate $20 or more, you will receive a customized Livejournal icon with your choice of screencapture and text.
