2 Shows That Offer a Different Look at Womanhood - Episode 118 [ 14:33 ] Play Now | Play in Popup | Download

This episode highlights two great shows from Netflix, Orange is the New Black and Grace and Frankie.

I don’t usually do a mini-study on TV shows, but I was so impressed by these shows that I just had to!

They both look at womanhood with different perspectives than the view we are used to seeing in the media!

Orange is the New Black has a ensemble cast filled with a variety of great characters. These characters face a similar life in prison but have come from very different pasts. The characters in this show identify in very different ways: black, white, Latina, Asian, old, young, lesbian, bisexual, trans, sick, healthy, urban, rural… And many more!

Grace and Frankie looks at starting over in life through the eyes of two, very different 70-year-old women. In what other show can you watch older woman be sexual, say “shit,” and talk about vaginal dryness? None, I say!

If you’re looking for a new show that looks at the real lives of women, check out this episode for two great ideas!
