They literally ran through Central Park topless.
Sutton, Kat, and Jane from The Bold Type are truly some of the BOLDEST AND BEST women on television.
They tackled trans rights, systemic racism, sexual exploration, misogyny, and still had time to be the best of friends to one another and somehow excel in their jobs.
Watching each of these characters grow over five seasons has been a joy, but watching them tackle the patriarchy has been empowering.
So in honor of tonight’s final episode (*wipes tear*), here are 22 of the boldest moments from The Bold Type.
When Jane bravely writes about her experience with orgasming (or lack thereof).
When Sutton literally creates a job for herself because there weren’t any positions available.
When Kat comes out as queer.
When Jane pushes to expose a famous photographer even at the risk of her own career.
When the trio goes topless for breast cancer awareness.
When Kat just hops on stage to casually give the most moving political speech I’ve ever heard.
And then, when Kat actually runs for city council and her platform is literally perfect.
