6 Portrayals Of Female Politicians On Television

Selina Meyer, Vice President of America, VEEP

Mike McLintock: Which way are you going to vote?
Selina Meyer: The way my principles and conscience tell me to go.
Amy Brookheimer: …Ok…
Selina Meyer: Which way do you think that should be?

It’s not exactly the most admirable portrayal of a woman in politics (constant cursing, spinning and lies) but it is definitely a memorable one and shows an honest side to Washington politics. Julia Louis-Dreyfuss plays the role to perfection and does show the constant judgement that a female VP has to endure (picked on for wardrobe spending, her romantic life and balancing career and motherhood.)
