14 Kinds of Girls We Need to See More of in Movies and TV Shows
It’s no secret that many different kinds of people are either under represented or misrepresented in Hollywood. Movies and TV show roles tend to skew towards thin, toned, conventionally attractive white actors and actresses. And when it comes to female representation, this is no exception. Despite the fact that it’s 2015, Hollywood is still run by males and female characters are still treated unfairly.
Shows with diverse casts and strong female characters like How To Get Away With Murder, Orange Is The New Black and Parks And Recreation show that things are improving, but we still have a long way to go. There are a lot of kinds of female representation still missing out there! Personally, I would love to see more actresses who are of average weight — not thin and toned, not plus size, but happily in the middle — and it’s never brought up in the show. By that I mean she isn’t defined by her weight at all, it’s just how she looks. That would be nice!
