“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” This African proverb rings true in many aspects in our lives. Teamwork is everything, and on the small screen it’s been pretty evident on Orange is the New Black and GLOW, where the female characters having been putting their differences asides and uniting to show strength and courage. This also results in major female empowerment, which is what our 2017 Change Makers are all about.
But back to TV: female ensembles aren’t new but Netflix has been making supportive and honest portrayals of female relationships the norm rather than the exception. Sisterhoods are being championed, complexities of real female relationships are tackled and light is shone on the women who support other women. Just watch this video to see what we mean.
Here’s a closer look at the five best #girlgang moments that were recently screened on Netflix. For some real life girl power inspo, be sure to check out our inspiring Change Makers 2017 and see how they’ve been making an impact right here in Singapore.
