The classic television series from the 1960s included a character called Dr. Maureen Robinson, who was a scientist, wife, and mother. She was tough and strong and quite able to tackle the challenges of a modern age space wife whose family was battling the unknown on a regular basis.
Maureen was a lovely blond and an adoring wife. Though she was very confident and capable of handling perilous situations, she was also tender. She and her husband, Dr. John Robinson worked as a team, as parents and as scientists exploring outer space.
Dr. Maureen Robinson’s specialty was biochemistry, but she could also help repair the Jupiter 2, in addition to making a mean cup of coffee. The biochemistry major was an important factor for a television female character to have in the 1960s. Prior to this, most television women were depicted as doting wives and mothers, who hardly ever had careers of their own.
