Women are multifaceted, & broadcast platform has been successful in showing women in every light possible. From being a torch bearer to being a badass, a woman can play varied roles in real as well as reel life.
On the occasion of International Women’s Day, we at UrbanAsian would like to give you 5 Hollywood series that show every feature that a woman has.
- 2 Broke Girls:
Usually, any show has one male & one female lead. But this show was exceptional. It has two female leads, which was a brave step on the director’s part at that point of time. Max & Caroline, worked as servers at a diner in Brooklyn, New York who struggled to make their end meet. Though it is a serious issue, the sit-com perfectly managed to throw a humourous light on it.
- Gossip Girl:
Women can be nicest when you are the same with them, but tables turn when they are ill-treated. Also, girls are normally prone to bitching & gossiping. So this show revolved around the elite kids of the upper east side of New York, their friendships & rivalry & how a discreet blogger knew everything that happened in the lives of these socialite kids. XOXO!
- Adventures Of Sabrina:
Sabrina, a half-mortal & half-witch girl, struggles to choose which world to belong to, while evil forces threaten her & her family. The show has witchcraft, occult as a part of its script, which also makes it one of the reasons it is a different light in which Sabrina’s character got portrayed.
- Orange Is The New Black:
The show is based on real-life experiences of Piper Kerman (played by Taylor Schilling). She does say that the series is not a docudrama, but her experiences are included in it. It also shows, how women are prone to falling prey to vices, foul play & how they rise out of it.
- Pretty Little Liars:
Girls can be each other’s best friends. But what happens when they break it off? Everyone has everyone’s secrets. This show is about four teen-girls whose secrets can come out in daylight unannounced.
