A ‘fixer’ who helps Washington’s rich and powerful clean up their messes and plays the PR game to perfection, Pope is the definition of a kickass woman doing it for herself, while helping others.

Five seasons in and we're still obsessed. Where else other than OITNB can you watch nuanced stories of so many women? Race, class and sexuality aren’t sidelined or treated with kid gloves. With detailed back stories for all the characters, the women of Litchfield Penitentiary are portrayed as more than inmates; and there’s a smart commentary on the US criminal justice system to boot.
