Cynthia Nixon Calls out ‘Sex and the City’

Cynthia Nixon Calls out 'Sex and the City'

Miranda aka Cynthia Nixon is on one these days CALLING out HBO’s beloved groundbreaking series ‘Sex and the City’ that the show lacked diversity.

Read on to see what else Cynthia Nixon is saying about “Sex and the City…” reports that former SATC cast member Cynthia Nixon seems to be having a change of heart about the beloved series she was a part of.

Cynthia Nixon states that “Sex and the City” only showcased women in their 30s and 40s who were single, sexual and stylish. According to Nixon, there were NOT enough working-class characters except for her on-screen husband Steve Brady.

Now, looking back on the show more than 20 years after it premiered, actress Cynthia Nixon can see that it also had “a lot of failings of the feminist movement in it.”

Ahead of the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of her drama “Stray Dolls,” Nixon said to IndieWire:

“SATC” featured women looking too “quote-unquote perfect” and acknowledged it took place “in a bit of a bubble.”

She added

Of course, it’s a feminist show, but it’s like white, moneyed ladies who are fighting for their empowerment.

Nixon noted:

One of the hardest things for me…is looking back and seeing how much of it centered around money, right? And how, Steve, my (character’s) husband, was like the closest we got to a working-class guy, you know? Never mind a working-class woman, right?

She concluded by stating that if there was a “Sex and the City” in these times it would be diversified.

Nixon states:

I certainly think we would not have all been white, God forbid.

We understand her views, but she is demeaning everything that SATC stood for and the relationship of the women. She was the working class lawyer in the series juggling a career, a baby and finding love. Cynthia Nixon should re-evaluate what she is saying because we find it a bit disturbing how she is looking back on her series.
