It’s hard not to notice the lack of large women on television – not plus-size women necessarily (whatever that means in this day and age, though would the NYTimes please not include someone who is a SIZE 8 in a slide show of “Plump and Proud”) but just women who don’t fall into the the pixie or willowy camps.
Enter British actress/comedian (why does it feel okay to to use the feminine suffix on one and not the other…) Miranda Hart. If you read this linked article closely, you’ll find her views support my future muu-muu cult.
She is doing such an amazing job on Call the Midwife that I’ve been trying to figure out how to watch her BBC Sitcom. I hope Netflix gets the rights to it soon.
