The Golden Girls has been described as one fo the most progressive shows of the 80s. The show, starring Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty highlighted a lot of taboo topics - but since these girls were "golden" that made it okay for them to say. 

This show opened viewers' eyes to a lot of issues that are STILL problems we talk about today; safe sex, and how it's important at any age, gay marriage and the girls also didn't shy away from issues affecting the elderly community like Alzheimers.
