Women’s Liberation


Woman, Art Thou Being Liberated?


Friendship, relationships, sexual intimacy, coping with loneliness and dejection are some of the themes explored in the very famous TV series Sex and the City. Beyond the excitement of life in Manhattan and the comedy situations portrayed in the program, Sex and the City offers an opportunity to reexamine the newly revived issue of women’s liberation.

Should women emulate men’s behavior? What kind of role model do men offer women? How do sex and love relate to each other? What is the role of entertainment in fashioning attitudes and behavior patterns? These are the questions examined in this section.
