The actress, who has played Agent Dana Scully on the hit supernatural Fox drama since it premiered in 1993, retweeted a Washington Post report that Season 11's writers room has only hired men, and then chimed in with another not-so-fun fact for female filmmakers.
"And 2 out of 207 eps directed by women. I too look forward to the day when the numbers are different. #TheFutureisFemale," Anderson tweeted.
Anderson, who co-stars alongside David Duchovny in the beloved series, actually directed one of those two episodes she referenced. The actress got behind the camera for Season 7 episode "All Things," which she also wrote.
"The X-Files" Season 11 does not have a premiere date yet.
Fans' responses to Anderson's tweet are as fun as they are supportive.

Of course, there's always at least one fragile soul who has to ruin the party.
