Cynthia Nixon Says 'Sex and the City' Had 'Lot of the Failings of the Feminist Movement'

Cynthia Nixon is all smiles as she strikes a pose at the screening of her film Stray Dolls held during the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival at Village East Cinema on April 27, 2019 in New York City.

Ahead of the premiere, the 53-year-old actress looked back at her hit HBO series Sex and the City and opened up about what she would have changed.

“Well, I certainly think we would not have all been white, God forbid,” Cynthia expressed (via IndieWire). “One of the hardest things for me — it was at the time, too — 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?”

“Also, I think we wouldn’t all look like that,” Cynthia added. “In terms of like, the perfection factor. In terms of always looking so incredible. And I know that’s the fantasy element, and in terms of the show that was important. But I think there’s a lot of ways that people can be visually compelling without looking — quote unquote — perfect.”

“There was so much debate when [Sex and the City] came out about whether it was a feminist show or not, which I always thought was stupid — of course it’s a feminist show,” Cynthia said. “But I think it has a lot of the failings of the feminist movement in it. In that it’s like white, moneyed ladies who are fighting for their empowerment. In a bit of a bubble.”

It’s a very somber night for Cynthia Nixon.

After it was revealed that the 52-year-old actress lost the Democratic primary bid to Andrew Cuomo for Governor of New York, Cynthia took to Twitter on Thursday night (September 13) to share her words of encouragement and thanks for her supporters.

“While the result tonight wasn’t what we had hoped for, I’m not discouraged. I’m inspired. I hope you are too. We have fundamentally changed the political landscape in this state,” Cynthia started off her thread of tweets.

Cynthia continued: “This is more than just a campaign – this is a movement. The movement we’re building isn’t just about one candidate, or one election. It’s about offering a vision of the way things COULD work, if only we have the leadership and the political courage to make it a reality.”

“Thank you all for believing and fighting and leaving it all on the field,” Cynthia concluded. “We started something here in New York, and it doesn’t end today. This is just the beginning. And I know that together, we will win this fight.”
