U Haiku #atozchallenge

In her short red skirt

She was a groundbreaking character in many ways: the first black woman on prime time TV who had an important, responsible, professional job, with the respect of all her coworkers. She fought not only aliens, but racism and sexism. In spite of the short skirt.
