19 Reasons D.W. From ‘Arthur’ Was The OG Boss Lady

Diamond Brown

All hail the original queen of the side eye.

Honestly, D.W. from “Arthur” pissed me off as a kid. Like Angelica from “Rugrats,” she was the epitome of everything I was taught to not be: loud, rude and all around bossy. I related more to Arthur, the chill dweeb who just wanted to hang out with friends at the local ice cream parlor.

20 years later, I’ve realized Dora Winifred Read is the bossiest badass to ever exist on television. If I had the same amount of confidence as D.W. when I was just 4 years old, I would’ve been the CEO of some startup company by now. The girl questions the system and never takes no for an answer. I totally stand behind that. Let’s break down every single reason she deserves our praise.

  1. She realizes how flawed our political system is and calls out what’s really important.
