Agree with you! Another strong female character is Red on Orange is the New Black. Actually there are so many strong female characters on that show but Red is my favorite. I remember Kate Mulgrew(sp?) from Ryans Hope, a soap opera on years ago and she played a news reporter. O.K. so in the 70s and 80s all we really had were our friends and soap operas 🙂 It is great to see her again and I think she is just incredible in this role. I kept hearing about Orange is the New Black and decided to give it a try. At first I was horrified…but then I found that I could not really look away and now I am just hooked.
