Amy Poehler Thinks Television Is The Best Place For Female Characters

“I think films are kind of catching up in a way to where television has been for a long time. Television is still, in my opinion, the best place for female characters. I’m so down with TV right now. Everything I watch is on TV and I love everything on TV and I think most TV shows are better than movies—there, I said it.”

Amy Poehler talks at the New Yorker Festival this weekend about how enthused she is about the female characters she’s seeing right now on television. Of course, she is in part talking about her character Leslie Knope on “Parks and Recreation,” who Amy says is her “favorite feminist on TV.” Amy explains that she actually is a lot like Leslie in real life, except that Leslie “loves to go camping, and I do not.” [ONTD]
