This beloved animated show’s title character is an intelligent, quiet observer and critic of the world around her, a world that is often greatly flawed and unequal.¬†While this is a lot to watch, I can definitely recommend any of these shows to you suffering from feeling underrepresented on television. It’s not enough, but it’s something.

Parks And Recreation

This hilarious comedy never gets very political, but Leslie Knope is the rare female character who is unapologetic about who she is. She doesn’t try to tamp down her positivity because it annoys some people; she defends her outlook and people end up loving her for it.
