Jane the Virgin

Unknown

Jane the Virgin is the hit new show about a young girl who practices abstinence but, through a series of misadventures, somehow finds herself pregnant. The show features a Hispanic-American family whose culture and background is not the center of their characters. Shows like this are few and hard to come by, and it is refreshing to see a representation of latin american people that does not try to set them apart through over-emphasis of their heritage. Jane the Virgin creates remarkably relatable characters, and in doing this, could help close the social gap between America and it’s neighbors by displaying them as people first, rather than Hispanic-Americans.
