Dorothy Zbornak and Carrie Bradshaw were each shaped by the women's movement of the 1960s.
As played by Bea Arthur in the TV comedy "The Golden Girls," Dorothy was feisty and liberated.
Just how much the two had in common is the subject of a discussion at the Nesconset Branch of the Smithtown Public Library on Tuesday, from 6:45 to 8:45 p.m. "Liberated Ladies: From 'The Golden Girls' to 'Sex and the City' " also will look at one major difference between Dorothy's group and Carrie's clique: money.
The event is free. For more information, call 516-622-4837.
