“I think in the 80’s you grew up with a hangover from the more strident feminism of the 70’s. Somehow feminism became a dirty word for a long time. I think even now girls aren’t really educated in feminism. You can have a history degree and not know anything about the suffragettes. It used to be just general parlance and nowadays it isn’t, and I think that’s a big shame. So I’ll call myself a feminist just for that reason.” Actress and writer Jennifer Saunders
Absolutely Fabulous, also known as Ab Fab, is a British sitcom created by Jennifer Saunders, based on an original idea by her and Dawn French, and written by Saunders, who plays the leading character. It also stars Joanna Lumley and Julia Sawalha, along with June Whitfield and Jane Horrocks.
Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders - these two multi-talented, prolific comedic actors have been together for ages, a pretty good testimony to their professionalism and personal gifts. Everything they do cracks me up. I admire the fact that much of their material is either written by them personally, or is a spin-off into their own genius way of expressing the nuttiness they observe in this life.
