A Sight For Sore Eyes: Feminism In Contemporary Television

The show business does not have the best reputation, especially when it comes to a fair portrayal of the sexes. Roles, screen-time, and opportunity both on and behind the screen have been long criticized as being biased. The pinches of off-screen patriarchy are often translated to punches of objectification and stereotype on-screen, fueling much feminist aggression regarding the general trend. However, with the most popular shows on English television taking a lead in putting a woman at the helm of their stories, a silver lining seems to emerge. Here we take a look at the most feminist-friendly shows on television, that treat their women right.
