Cathy Retires and so Might Single Women Stereotypes

Aack! Cathy Retires and so Can Single Women Stereotypes

Before Beyonce gave them a theme song, before Sex and the City explained their love for shoes, before Liz Lemon demonstrated their chocolate obsession, and before Bridget Jones performed their clumsy dating mishaps, Cathy the cartoon represented stereotypical single women in newspapers every week battling food, love, mom, and work.
