Girl power avant la lettre
2017 will go down in history as the year women once again hit the streets to fight for equality after Trump became president. As the year some powerful men were exposed as lecherous beasts who couldn’t keep their hands to themselves. 2017 was all about #metoo, for some a serious matter and to others a joke.
Las Chicas del Cable takes place a century ago and proves that women’s rights do have evolved. At that specific time period, women were in a lot of ways dependent on their husbands or families and not even allowed to vote. But change was in the air. More and more women started to step up their game and create a life of their own, obviously not without obstacles. The series is full of topics that are still relevant and the four female protagonists (literally) had to fight for their rights.
