It’s a claim that’s horrified the Sisterhood. But here one female author dares to argue that it’s true…
VESPER LYND Played by Eva Green in Casino Royale, she was Bond’s banker with a secret.
Feminist credentials: Vesper was Fleming’s first Bond girl, and one of his best. She’s a beautiful British agent who has been sent to help Bond – much to his chagrin – in his mission to confound the villainous Le Chiffre. After falling for her, he discovers that she’s been spying for the enemy. Rather than betray him, Vesper kills herself.
Feminist rating: 6/10. It takes a certain guts to betray Bond.
Most likely to say: ‘I can advance you ten million francs.’
Least likely to say: ‘You don’t mind that I betrayed you do you, James?’
