Feminism has been making space for itself on TV for some time now. And for those who feel like their voice has been left out of the mainstream feminist agenda, these TV shows will make you a better intersectional feminist and then some. Truthfully, there are so many different experiences the movement doesn't always remember to cover ground for, and there's a lot of work to do to make feminism more accessible to more than just a few kinds of women. However, there are shows that are streaming now that will teach you more about inclusivity, whether you are feeling discouraged or whether you're trying to learn more about intersections.
In 2017, I can honestly say I'm happy to see shows with characters that look like me, that eliminate biases, and that hone in on a diverse pain, humor or family dynamics. The more we see different people of all shapes, sexual preferences, and races (played by actors that we feel know and understand those experiences), the more we start to construct an inclusive feminism outside of our own experience and make the feminist fight one all women can support.
So check out the following shows that will definitely make you a better intersectional feminist. We could all use a little refresher.
