I Have a Question for Moms and Dads of Teenage (Plus) Girls

Are there any cool characters in pop culture right now that are good-girl role models? I think this was Hannah Montana at some point? But I’m thinking a few years older — because girls look to the older girls. I ask this in part because I’ve noticed increasingly 20 somethings from traditional-type backgrounds having (and still) Carrie Bradshaw and Bridget Jones, etc. as their cultural benchmarks. Do they seek to live their lives? Probably not entirely. But they relate — or think they relate — and, I’m thinking, Do they really have other options?
