lady list #5: my favourite lady-centric media (or, GIRL GANGS, pt. 2)

or, super goddamn heroines
  1. hot in cleveland
    HOT MIDDLE AGED LADY FRIENDS IN RIDICULOUS SITCOMMY SCENARIOS
  2. desperate housewives
    i kinda want a rewatch
  3. grace & frankie
    frenemies to roommates to lovers
  4. big little lies
    She and She and She and She and She Did That!
  5. steel magnolias
    clairee and ouiser were girlfriends pass it on
  6. carol
    invented wlw, christmas, and cinema
  7. gilmore girls
    my literal favourite thing about this is how carole king hasn't sung where you lead in ages bc it was creepy but she was willing to sing it w her daughter for a mother-daughter tv show. only goes to show how much better things are when contextualised for women
  8. wicked the musical
    ok the book (as in of the musical, idk abt the Book itself i haven't read it) is messy and i hate that elphie runs away with fiyero when it should've been glinda but like. i just love wicked ok
  9. the first wives club
    DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO DOOOOO AND DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO SAAAAAAY
  10. hidden figures
    women invented science and math
  11. unREAL
    i hate that season 3 is gonna have more men than women but i hope rachel hooks up with the bachelorette (suitress??) and that quinn becomes super jealous (even more so than in the past), but ANYWAY, i love manipulative women
  12. nine to five
    the movie and the musical but holy crap the movie is honestly the best comedy i've ever watched i can't believe that movie was real and not a fever dream
  13. thelma and louise
    i think this was the first movie that really made me go all, 😮💖😮💖 WOMEN 💖😮💖😮
