The very first episode of Sex and the City premiered 20 years ago this year! And let’s be real, SATC is still as relevant today as it was back then. Four leading ladies, living their fabulous lives in New York City, while redefining the portrayal of sex and relationships, will never get old!
One of the reasons for the shows’ ongoing success is the fact that most women can easily relate to these characters. If you’re a SATC lover, I bet you’ve related to each one of the main characters at least a bunch of times.
In honour of the SATC anniversary, we wrote up a few reasons why we are all still Carries, Samanthas, Mirandas, and Charlottes at heart.
Why we are all still Carrie Bradshaw:
Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), the show’s main character, is a hopeless romantic living in the Big Apple, who has dated A LOT of crappy men.
And boy, oh boy, Carrie, gurl, do we feel yah! Aren’t we all just a bunch of Carries, looking for love and going on way too many crappy Tinder dates? #thestruggleisreal
Why we are all still Samantha Jones:
Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), the character who does what she wants, when she wants, who she wants, and doesn’t apologize – ever.
Samantha Jones is the voice of our generation. We are all, or we should be, unapologetically ourselves. We are starting to advocate having a voice for our decisions, our sexuality and our beliefs. As Samantha once said: “I will not be judged by you or society” and may we say, preach, Samantha, preach!
Why we are all still Miranda Hobbs:
Miranda Hobbs (Cynthia Nixon) is the career-focused and highly ambitious modern-day feminist.
We’re all a bunch of Miranda’s trying to juggle our love lives, careers, friendships and even motherhood, all while trying to assert our independence. We like to pretend that we’ve got it all together, all the time, but sometimes we crash and burn and end up eating our feelings, too. Double stuffed oreos, am I right?
Why we are all still Charlotte York:
Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) is the idealist and an innocent socialite whose expectations are a little bit outdated, but her intentions are good and she truly wants the best for herself and her friends.
Charlotte is a character we can all relate to as we are nothing without our friends and we also truly want the best for them. We as women should always stand together and encourage growth within ourselves and for one another. #GirlPower
