“How ‘Daria’ served as the ultimate antidote to ’90s bro culture” by Wendy Syfret for i-D
Many of the show’s most interesting moments and storylines were explorations of female friendships and relationships between sisters. Best friend Jane Lane wasn’t a supporting character there to nod and maybe wear a cute hat. She challenged and supported her friend: calling her out, pushing her to be better, smarter, never allowing her to become a parody of herself. Nowhere is this more evident than in Daria’s decision to try contact lenses, which then triggers an existential crisis. Jane lovingly calls bullshit on her pal, not dismissing her feelings, but allowing her to feel safe and loved enough to be imperfect.
