HAPPY IWD: Our Guide To Television’s Ultimate Leading Ladies & Feminist Heroes
Today is all about International Women’s Day – a glorious 24 hour long dedication to the wonderful women in our lives, and how we can make the world a more gender equal space, for all of us.
It’s also a day (for Punkee HQ, specifically) to reflect on the feminist influences and kick-ass women that have shaped pop culture today.
So we thought: what better day to recognise television’s greatest leading ladies and feminist heroes? Honouring the TV series’ that promote story-telling that doesn’t merely include, but champions you know, over half of the world’s population. Amazing fictional women in many shapes and sizes.
From the ultimate ‘strong female lead’ Buffy Summers, the fierce AF Arya Stark, Eleven and Dana Scully, to the perpetually hilarious Leslie Knope, Liz Lemon and Rebecca Bunch.
