Sophia is able to overcome all of the obstacles thrown at her and succeed in creating a massive online business. The show also provides an entertaining narrative between her best friend and a boyfriend.
Girlboss adds another layer of feminism here by ending the show with Sophie dumping her cheating boyfriend and focusing on expanding her business.
