Throwback to Pacific Coast Academy

This weekend I decided to watch the first couple episodes of Zoey 101 because Pacific Coast Academy was the ultimate dream school back in the day (duh). As I reminisced singing to the theme song, I totally forgot that PCA was a boys only school. I know, that’s a big part of the whole plot- but I honestly only remembered the show as this badass boarding school by a beach with pear laptops, sidekicks and Jet- X’s everywhere.

I watched Zoey meet Chase as well as her roommates, and noticed she actually plays an amazing role model for all young girls. She surprisingly goes through each episode overcoming daily, recurring problems regarding the equality between boys and girls. Whether it’s trying out for the boys basketball team or running for class president, Zoey shows her peers that both boys and girls are all one in the same.

I was actually proud to say this was one of the shows I valued throughout my childhood because at the time I had NO idea the show was basically the embodiment of equality. Even my 17 year old brother made the comment on how he just realized the show was based on Feminism. This is yet another reason to be thankful for being born in the 90’s.

I can’t help but think that the show would be even more helpful in modern society because when I look at what my 9 year old brother is watching, all I see is Ariana Grande in a pink wig literally whining everywhere which makes me cringe.

Yes I know Jamie Lynn Spears ended up quitting the show because she was having a baby (awks)… regardless, the character she played for at least three years provided young girls and boys with lighthearted, positive messages about gender equality which is so helpful with respect to self image in young children.

Well done Nickelodeon slash Family Channel, well done.

Till next time,

S
