Sex and the city was a famous show in HBO, i came to watch the old seasons in AXN channel in india. And i was so inspired by the lead character Carrie Bradshaw her thoughts and lifestyle empowers any women or man who is free thinker and open minded, and her modern view points and fashion sense is an inspiration to many people like me.
Carrie Bradshaw is portrayed by actress Sarah Jessica Parker originlly created by
Candace Bushnell, who published the book
Sex and the city.
On the HBO series, Bradshaw is a New York City newspaper columnist, fashionista, and later, freelance writer for Vogue and a published author. Her weekly column, “Sex and the City,” provides the title, storylines, and narration for each episode.
Carrie is notoriously led by her emotions. She seeks acceptance ,
She often behaves in a selfish manner (as seen during her affair) but unless her self-involvement is pointed out by friends, she is apt to blame this on her tendency to get ‘Carried Away’, a phrase coined by Mr. Big in Season 2. The result is a flawed but relatable character due to the
self-deprecating humor with which she tackles stereotypical issues within male–female relationships (commitment being the running theme).
Carrie is an on-off smoker and when she smokes, she is mostly seen with Marlboro Lights . She enjoys cocktails . While Carrie is a realist about the difficulties of relationships, having experienced many bad ones throughout the course of the series, she is a romantic on an endless search for true love, Despite this, she repeatedly expresses doubts that she is the type to get married and raise a family.
Even these days, with the incredible increase of female-led shows and female characters that i love, I am disappointed with the lack of focus on how women relate to each other and the world around
I love and applaud their frank, realistic portrayal of a huge list of feminist talking points from abortion, to differing views on motherhood, to balancing a personal life with your career, to breaking rules and expectations for women aging, to what is still considered revolutionary attitudes towards women’s sexuality. Speaking of sex – yes, the show had a lot to do with sex and relationships and men. If you want to watch women primarily dealing with financial hardship or fighting inequality, watch another show. It had a lot of worthwhile things to say about relationships and, for better or worse, gave me some foundation to stand on when it came to figuring out how to deal with them on my own.
Were these women perfect?
No. And it upsets me to read criticisms hurled at Carrie Bradshaw by the same women who defend the recent surge in trying to bring flawed female characters to the screen. I don’t want perfect women. I see enough perfect women as girlfriends and wives and best friends in the vast majority of male-dominated media that exists in the world. I want to sheepishly identify with their insecurities, mistakes, and neuroses. Was it petty and juvenile for Carrie to take such joy in Natasha’s incorrect “their” in her card? Of course it was. But don’t act like you haven’t . If we want a realistic portrayal of womanhood, we need to accept the portrayal of our flaws as well. Maybe they’re not your flaws, maybe you think you’re nothing like any of the characters, but I do think that between 4 female characters and 6 seasons, so many of us can see something of ourselves in them.
The show, with all of its imperfections, continues to be a powerful and empowering portrayal of the female experience and, social issues faced by women.
and she still influence alot of women who want freedom and acceptance in their life.
