Which of these girl squads would you want to be a part of?

There’s really nothing we love more in film and TV than some good female characters who kick ass and tell everyone who’s boss! What makes this even better is if you make them a group of women working together for the same goal or just being there for each other when things get rough and tough.

We’ve given you 12 TV barkadas we’ve come to love in the past couple of years. Now, we’re listing down 8 of our favorite films and TV series with amazing girl gangs. Check them out below:

Sex Education

Aside from discussing topics about sex that we rarely talk about, Sex Education also highlights female friendship. Different as they may seem from each other, Maeve, Aimee, Lily, Ola, Olivia, and Viv manage to find something that they all have in common. The iconic bus scene from season 2 just goes to show us what sisterhood really means, and how women will always have each other’s back when they need it.
