More Than A Woman — Aaliyah



Feminism & Womanhood (Part 1)


Candace Bushnell is a feministic genius! She’s written works such as Lipstick Jungle, The Carrie Diaries, Trading Up, and most notably Sex & The City.


Set in the 90s and early 2000s, SATC follows the lives of four, uniquely successful New York City women. You may be reading this wondering, what can I possibly have in common with Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha — Manhattan women who would now be in their 50s. Although the show is almost twenty years old, these characters still reign supreme. When watching the show, I oftentimes find myself relating to, and mirroring each of the four ladies.

I started watching the show circa 2008, a few years after the series finale. Unbeknownst to me, the show was already a classic! As a senior in high school, not only was I struggling with my own romanticΒ trysts and preparing for college, I was also trying to learn how to be a woman — a young woman. Although I learned a great deal from my mother, there are just some conversations we don’t have — romantic matters being one.

My freshmen year of undergrad was a year of firsts — first car, first time living away from home, and my first taste of true independence. When I was not studying and writing papers, my time was spent reading the Twilight series, and watching my SATC DVDs.

In six seasons, I learned the art of femininty, a refreshed appreciation for high fashion, fiscal responsibility, and most importantly, how to be a woman in a male-dominated society.
