Whither the "Modern Woman"? The Today Show may have the answer! Earlier today, the morning show kicked off its new series, "In Search Of The Modern Woman", with a Meredith Vieria-moderated discussion about representations of single-women on TV over the decades, from the groundbreaking That Girl to, um, Friends. (No mention of Sex And The City. Funny that!) Although we were thrilled to see clips of Marlo Thomas from the old days ("Free To Be You And Me" even got a shout-out), what we really loved was the old white guy explaining how female TV characters over the years have not only taught us how to assemble our identities... but our plumbing!
