19 Times Leslie Knope Shut Down Sexism On "Parks & Rec"

"Maybe it's time for more women to be in charge" —Leslie Knope

Posted on

1. When she had the best possible comeback for Councilman Milton.


Councilman Milton: I believe one problem with hiring women is that they're frail and breakable.

Leslie: Is it possible you're thinking about lightbulbs? Or your hip?

2. When she threw some subtle shade at Dewey.


Dewey: Ever since you stripped us of our freedoms by making us hire women, we've had to turn one of our bathrooms into a woman's bathroom. We only have one bathroom now.

Leslie: I'm so sorry, Dewey. That sounds like a horrible price to pay for something as trivial as gender equality.


10. When she called out the media for their sexist questions.


Leslie: Why did I change my hairstyle? Oh, I don't know. I decided it would look better... or my kids got gum in it. Do you miss your kids while you're at work? Yes... of course I do. Everybody does.


13. When she understood the importance of celebrating female bonds.


Leslie: But February 13th, Galentine's Day, is about celebrating lady friends. It's wonderful, and it should be a national holiday.
