Q: What's the most empowering thing about being fun, fearless women?

Kristin: I think the thing that I love the most about the thing that we've gotten to be a part of for all of this time is that we are together in it. So it's women who are different. We're different in life. Our characters are different, yet we're very, very together. No matter if we always agree, like sometimes, the characters disagree. ... I love the fact that what we've created all together—and what Michael has created in the writing for us—is these really powerful women who can be each powerful in her own right and still be together. To me, that's my favorite part of the whole experience, living through it together.

Kim: I think the most powerful thing for me is we have encouraged a lot of women to change the way they feel about being single, about having cancer. All the storylines about getting married, and then being deserted, being alone, being lonely. I think we've addressed them and encouraged them to come together. I think that's a very powerful thing in this era of post-feminism. I think that we've defined what it is to be successful, smart and, also, feminine.
