Sarah Jessica Parker Says 'Sex and the City' 'Wasn't Intentionally Empowering'

Although people often regard “Sex and the City” as empowering, at its core, Sarah Jessica Parker said the series was about love.

“I don’t think that empowerment was a word that was ever used once on our set, in a writer’s room, among the female actors,” Parker said in a conversation with Michelle Pfeiffer during Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” series.

The interview will air in its entirety on Variety’s “Actors on Actors” Season 6, presented by Shutterstock, which premieres June 13 on PBS SoCal.
