The article highlights the roles of television actresses in the TV series "24," in the U.S. The portrayal of women in the TV program is far-off different from the conventional point of view. Instead of being the usual victims or backstabbers, they played big roles, dodging assassins, acting as connivers, traitors, and hardy villains. Among the women, who have been part of the series are Kim Raver, May Lynn Rajskib, and Jean Smart. INSET: Precious moments.
