It’s finally June 12! That means one of my favorite shows returns tonight. The Bold Type is a show about three women working in different areas of editorial. Jane is a new writer. Kat is a social media manager. Sutton is a fashion assistant. These three best friends are conquering editorial one by one.
This show is not only entertaining, but it also shines a light on important topics. Here’s why you definitely need to tune into Freeform tonight to watch The Bold Type.
It Depicts Real Life
You know those shows that are just unrealistic? Think about the older tv shows like The Secret Life of the American teenager. It just didn’t seem realistic. The Bold Type depicts real situations that women go through. For example, Jane speaks about how she never had an orgasm. That is real on so many levels. Most women can’t orgasm through penetration, and I love that the show brought this up.
Also, Sutton was torn about choosing her dream job or one that pays a higher salary. If you live in New York like me, you know how important money is. Rent in the city ranges from $2000-$4000. That’s a lot of dough!
It Educates People
Nikohl Boosheri plays the character Adina, a lesbian muslim woman in New York City. This is huge because we often forget about the difficulties Muslims face in America because of the negativity the media shows. Not only is it hard being Muslim, it is also difficult as a lesbian in this country where people judge you all the time. The Bold Type educates its viewers on certain lifestyles, which is what we need.
It’s All About Women Empowerment
These women go after what they want and aren’t afraid to do so. They are thriving in New York City, while keeping up with their personal lives. The women in this show support each other. Even the editor in chief, Jacqueline, supported Jane when she left for another magazine. This is everything we need in the world.
The Bold Type premieres tonight at 8/7c on Freeform.
