17 Feminist TV Shows To Watch With Your Sister

Share

In 2017, finding TV shows that are worth your time can be a difficult task. In the age of too much choice, it's easy to spend an entire evening scrolling through Netflix just looking for something to watch. And when it comes to viewing TV with members of your family, it's nearly impossible to find a show that pleases everyone. Which is why we all need a super helpful list of feminist TV shows to watch with your sister, when you both just want to kick back and marathon some awesome content.

Luckily, TV is pretty female-friendly right now, and there are so many options to choose from. If you expect your shows to be feminist and fierce, then look no further than The Good Fight. The Good Wife's spin-off is not only way more feminist than its counterpart, it's unafraid to tackle serious topics head on like rape culture, doxxing, and alt-right politics. But if that sounds too heavy for a night in with your sis, maybe you need something retro, like Sister, Sister. Relive your childhood and hark back to a simpler time when you didn't have rent to pay and the internet wasn't used by mere mortals yet. Prepare some snacks, grab the remote, and enjoy.
