More like The XY Files!
Gillian Anderson is at the center of yet another modern example of sexism in Hollywood.
The X Files star, who played one of the most iconic, well-drawn female characters in TV history, will be back for an 11th season this year — but she will not have any ladies in her corner.

Don’t have to be Spooky Mulder to solve this case. The sexism is out there.
