Y’all why aren’t we talking about Call The Midwife??
60s British aesthetics on fleek, women in an often forgotten medical profession, literally every episode passes the bechdel test with ease, there’s like 1 (one) male main character and he never talks down to the women and never questions them, also there’s a whole ep where a POC midwife joins the Gang™️ and when she goes to bed everyone else is like “aight so we all agree we’re gonna beat up anyone who talks shit about her right”. Also there’s a confirmed lesbian couple???? As of the current season they are both alive and happy??? Guys. Dudes. What a time to be alive.
Oooh, I reblogged this earlier but I wanna add – this show is amazing with portraying disability. As in, people with the actual disabilities were cast to play characters who had them*. (A REALLY low bar, I know, but I guess that’s the world we live in.) It’s featured literally more disabled characters than I’ve ever seen on any show, it’s amazing.
(*Apart from the child who plays baby Susan, but I suppose with babies it’s a different case)
