Amazing Feminist Characters on TV Right Now

Rachel Goldberg, star of the new Lifetime TV series UnREAL, is introduced on the show lying down in a limo, her T-shirt’s proclamation plainly visible: “THIS IS WHAT A FEMINIST LOOKS LIKE.” Rachel may not exactly be a model feminist—her day job is “making grown women cry,” as another character puts it, on a Bachelor-esque reality TV show—but we started wondering which other characters on current television shows do or would identify themselves as feminists.
