Day Six: Favourite Female Driven Show

The Bletchley Circle

There are no male leads in this show. It was one of the few shows, if the only, where not only do the women drive it’s narrative but the men play no part but background noise or guest slots. 
Set in Post-War London, this show focuses on four highly intelligent women who used to work as code breakers at Bletchley House during the war. Due to the Official Secrets Act they are forbidden from telling anyone how they contributed to the war and so no one knows how they discovered one of the key things which helped defeat Germany (They broke an impossible code which led to multiple details on a secret attack). They are constantly belittled by the men surrounded them, be it colleagues or husbands or friends,as they are dismissed as ‘just women’ better suited to knitting than crime solving. However, when the police fail to solve the serial murders of young girls, the four team up in secret once more and using their combined skills (each specialises in one particular area of Intelligence) they tackle the murder like breaking a code and end up solving the crime right from under entirely-male police force’s noses. 
Alongside this main storyline, we also see their own individual arcs and experience which include but are not limited to spousal abuse, job dismissal based on gender, sexual harassment and rape, and we see each of these characters take these things head on and rally together supportively (When one is abused by her husband repeatedly, knowing she is too frightened to make the move to leave herself, the other three quickly and quietly orchestrate an escape and move her in with one of them, and we are witness to her peacefully sleeping for what is clearly the first time in years) and overcome any and every obstacle.
They are each entirely different, we have the serious librarian, the colourful flirt, the mother-and-wife, the quiet, shy, innocent, but none judges the other for their differences, nor do they try to change one another. They embrace their differing personalities and encourage them, and unlike the many males they come across, they all know they are not limited to this ‘type-casting’.. The serious librarian can drink the others under the table, the innocent has a brilliant mind for calculation and event manipulation, the responsible mother-and-wife is an inspiring leader and battle planner, the flirt is incredibly insightful and considerate. 
This is a show which truly has women celebrating women and there is not a part of it which isn’t fantastic.

The Bletchley Circle - Exclusive Trailer

9 years after World War II has ended, Susan (Anna Maxwell Martin), a former codebreaker who is now married with a family, finds herself caught up in the boredom of her own life. Looking for an escape, Susan hunts down Millie (Rachael Stirling), an old flame who worked with her at Bletchley Park. Together, they begin to use their well-trained minds to try and find purpose to their lives again. But when they stumble into the crosshairs of Marta (Brana Bajic), an equally clever ex-codebreaker with all the power of the black market and corruption at her disposal, Millie and Susan find themselves being pushed as never before, all the while fighting back buried feelings for one another.

15 Days of Fanmixes: Day 5 - for a tv show
You couldn’t be ordinary if you tried. - They were women of great skill and intellect, important for a fleeting moment and then shunted to the side.  But they refused to remain there.  Usefulness was not behind them and they would use their skills for the betterment of the world in whatever way they could.  A mix inspired by the ladies of The Bletchley Circle.

01. The Violet Hour | The Civil Wars -[instrumental]  02. Days Are Gone | HAIM - And I got back up when I lost control over it all, over it all. and I knew that I couldn´t take no more ´cause I want it all, I want it all. all the times I´ve said it, all the times I´ve said it before: those days are gone.  03. Flaws | Bastille - there’s a hole in my soul; I can’t fill it, I can’t fill it. there’s a hole in my soul, can you fill it? can you fill it? 04. That Wasn’t Me | Brandi Carlile - hang on, just hang on for a minute; I’ve got something to say. I’m not asking you to move on or forget it, but these are better days. to be wrong all along and admit it is not amazing grace; but to be loved like a song you remember even when you’ve changed  05. I Have Made Mistakes | The Oh Hellos - I have made mistakes, I continue to make them. the promises I’ve made, I continue to break them. and all the doubts I’ve faced, I continue to face them; but nothing is a waste if you learn from it.  06. 1901 | Birdy - counting all different ideas, drifting away, past and present they don’t matter now the future’s sorted out.  07. Be Still | The Fray - when darkness comes upon you and covers you with fear and shame, be still and know that I’m with you and I will say your name.  08. Human Qualities | Explosion In the Sky - [instrumental]

straight people are terrifying they can go as far as to give the girl skeleton a pair of bone titties to indicate its a straight relationship

Oh my razzling dazzling god

Actually, the skeleton with bone boobs is a male skeleton. From what I can see, the pelvic inlet is too narrow to be female, and the pubic arch is far too V shaped to be female. So this is scientifically two male skeletons.
