Pepsi’s CEO Just Binged Watched This TV Show

Posted on

Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi is a very busy woman but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have time to watch television.

Speaking at the Forbes Women’s Summit in NYC on Tuesday, Nooyi said that a few months ago she found the show “Sex and the City” on HBO and binge watched it.

The show has been admired by many fans, both women and men, for years. Sex and the City chronicled the lives of four New York City women and ran from 1998 to 2004.

Nooyi remarked, “I watched all 94 episodes. I binge watched it. There were so many scenes that focus on the first word and not the other three words…but you can fast forward. Every episode had a lesson. The biggest takeaway was the sisterhood of these women.”

She continued, “The sisterhood they had was fantastic. Why don’t we have a sisterhood? The more I [watched] that show I said, ‘Man, we have to have our own safe spot where we can talk about our issues. You can’t talk about it at home. No one wants to hear about work at home. We need an environment where sisterhood doesn’t judge us but gives us constructive feedback. Where we can talk about Mr. Big in a comfortable way.”

She also said, “That show profoundly altered my thinking because while showing fashions, which were awesome, but it was really about what was behind the covers. The sisterhood of women. Let’s put ourselves in charge. That sisterhood needs to form. And when we get there, I think there’s no stopping us.”
