Kitty was a new character in the comic, and they wanted to delve deeper into her character. That's not really where we are in the X-Men movies right now.
And that was terrible and unimaginative.
The last thing we need is having a girl in the 70s for the sake of having a girl in the 70s.
I could answer to the three comments, but I preffer to do it with the last one alone.
Its not just about having a girl, its about expanding the x-men world of the past, and right now, they have 5 characters already used on the previous movies. So they arent expanding the 70's world, just being unimaginative, as you say.
Thats why a few new characters would bring something new, fresh, to give one or two new characters a chance to get introduced to general audience and x-men fans alike, and expand the relationships of the FC characters too, showing how they meet and feel about the new faces.
More than one solid reason to include a new girl or two new characters, if you ask me.
