Orange Is the New Black
Orange Is the New Black has been busting through stereotypes from the moment it first premiered in 2013. One surefire way to prioritize female representation on your show is to set it in a women's prison, and God knows these women have bigger concerns than boy problems. The sheer variety of female relationships on this show is eye-opening, but the interactions themselves are a testament to the complexity of women's bonds. Whether they are confiding their hopes in each other over laundry or stabbing each other in the back (both literally and figuratively), the inmates at Litchfield represent both the intense loyalty and the malevolence that women are capable of. And beyond that, they show just how necessary and how special the ties between women can be.
