"One day, I decided that instead of being hurt and upset by your disapproval, I'm gonna be amused." -Lorelai Gilmore, Gilmore Girls.
Opinionated and high spirited, Lorelai Gilmore rebelled against her traditional parents by making her own life for herself after she became pregnant at the age of sixteen. She is the main protagonist of the TV series Gilmore Girls. Gilmore Girls, centres around the single
mother Lorelai and the tension between her and her controlling mother, Emily Gilmore. After completing her Business degree at night school, Lorelai and her best friend Suki fulfilled their dream of starting their own inn, The Dragonfly Inn in her home town of Stars Hollow.
As a coffee and junk food addict, lorelai’s most renowned for her witty remarks, often with references to pop culture. Lorelai Gilmore is best friends with her daughter Rory, with Virginia Heffernan of the New York Times describing the mother daughter duo as being ‘unsentimental brainiacs’ who talk at a fast pace. For me, Lorelai Gilmore is one of my favourite feminist from a TV series because despite the criticism of her parents, she always pursues her dreams. By far, my favourite aspect of Lorelai’s character is her infamous witticisms.
"Oy with the poodles aready!" -Lorelai Gilmore, Gilmore Girls.
