#WokeCharlotte may be the best meme to emerge from the entire "SATC" franchise, and has made Charlotte the new non-problematic fave. Somehow "check your privilege" works best coming from this Republican sorority girl, especially when she's incredulously pointing out the show's dated references to bi and trans people (and virtual erasure of people of color—in New York City of all places). 

There's a reason we don't have a #WokeCarrie meme—no one would ever believe a character so selfish could become a social justice warrior, where Charlotte actually sacrificed for her friends and family.

And though Bradshaw was always the star of the show, some people have really gone off on Carrie since the show ended—a lot of her behavior and choices didn't age well.

But plenty of "SATC" fans still stand for Carrie. She remains a fashion icon, and in many ways, she made being a bachelorette sexy and exciting.

Can you name a TV show or film prior to this that centered around a woman reflecting about her life and the world? Carrie, for better or worse, was our first pop-culture philosopher.

Carrie may be the most relatable of the four leads, precisely because she made some terrible fashion, money and romance choices in her 30s.

Carrie is often called one of the greatest TV characters of all time.

But Charlotte's earnest belief that love is out there and that things do work out eventually won over many viewers.

Nothing was funnier than when conservative Charlotte tried to let her hair down and go with the flow.
