I agree with Jeryl. TOS was so sexist. Simply having women in the programme was not equality and the lengths of their "skirts" was ridiculous.
At a time when the only women serving aboard US Navy vessels were nurses on hospital ships, having one-third of the Enterprise's crew be female was progressive. As was the woman First Officer in the original pilot.

Didn't like that she felt she had to remain on the planet just because she had been in an accident.

A. Why couldn't they fix her
B. Looks aren't supposed to matter in Star trek

Gene Roddenberry was such a chauvinist.
Presentism, presentism, presentism.
