Using lodash to compare arrays (items existence without order)

I know I can do it using loops, but I’m trying to find an elegant way of doing this:

I have two arrays:

var array1 = [['a', 'b'], ['b', 'c']];
var array2 = [['b', 'c'], ['a', 'b']];

I want to use lodash to confirm that the above two arrays are the same. By ‘the same’ I mean that there is no item in array1 that is not contained in array2.

In terms of checking equality between these items:

['a', 'b'] == ['b', 'a'] 

or

['a', 'b'] == ['a', 'b'] 

Both work since the letters will always be in order.
