The name Obvi, We’re The Ladies was inspired by a line from Season 1, Episode 2 of the HBO hit dramedy, Girls.
In one scene, Jessa, Hannah and Shoshanna are sitting on a bench discussing Hannah’s boy problem when Shoshanna pulls out a self help book for women. She reads a few excerpts, each directly addressing “the ladies.”
When asked, “who are the ladies?” the book is referring to, Shosh quickly responds, “Obvi, we’re the ladies!” Each of these girls has a very different opinion of the advice, but when it comes down to it, yes, they are all ladies. They’re a community.
At Obvi, and within OWTL, we strive to be this kind of community. We don’t need to agree on everything, but we do have to see the struggles that undoubtedly connect us. We believe that differences aside (but recognized), we are stronger together.
