The format of the series was comedy and it was created by Darren Star. The main cast included Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall. Based on this series, in 2008 the movie was also released which was directed and written by Michael Patrick King.

A new perspective on today’s lifestyle
The television series “sex and the city” portrayed aptly the lifestyle of single women in a large city. In fact it echoes today’s reality where more and more women are joining the professional work force and are rediscovering the meaning of freedom, sex, orgasm, love and relationships.
The series brings alive the widest possible shades of human thought, emotion and feeling ranging from short term passionate relationships, long term working relationships and the desire to find true love.
The four women characters of the series are caught in the whirlpool of these basic human instincts and each episode portrays the ups & downs and the sweetness-bitterness of the numerous unfolding relationships that they have in the city.
Apart from the drama part, this series also handled socially relevant and contentious issues related to STD’s, safe sex, multiple partners, promiscuity and the changing roles and definitions for women in society.

This site envisions the rise of womanhood in true sense that is the rise of the “essence” of womanhood in the physical, mental, intellectual and the spiritual planes.
