The Greatest TV Shows for Women

List Criteria: Vote up and add all of your favorite shows geared towards women.

List of the greatest TV shows for women. For stay-at-home mothers or young girls in groups, television shows can be an epic activity and chance to bond with their friends and family. These are the TV series deemed the best for that woman-bonding time. The demographics of these shows all absolutely include a male audience of all ages, but they will statistically skew towards the fairer gender. Most of the shows feature strong female protagonists or ensembles consisting of memorable female characters. In fact, a lot of the television series literally have the word "girls" in it. One example? "Girls." In addition to the HBO hit, there are girls that are golden, girls that gossip, girls that are broke, a girl that is new, and girls who are... powerpuffs. And where would television be without women like Mary Tyler Moore, Laverne, Shirley, Mindy, Lizzy McGuire, or Gidget? So get the sisterhood together to watch these TV shows in your living rooms.
