5 Movie Recommendations Every Woman (And Man) Should Watch

Empowerment, sisterhood, resilience.


Our most recent blog post focuses on movie recommendations (we love that). You might be wondering, "how does that relate to women's career journeys?" Well, what better platform than cinema to showcase realistic (and entertaining) representations of women's lives and careers and how they are forever interconnected.


The challenges, and joys of women have been represented in cinema for centuries. Although some perpetuate unrealistic and biased images, others are an amazing reflection of what it is like to live and work as a woman throughout the years.  

 

The movies below will hopefully inspire you and provide you with the beautifully imperfect complexity of female growth, friendships, careers, and so, so much more.

This movie is inspired by the non-fiction book "Hidden Figures", written by Margot Lee Shetterly. It describes the lives and work of three African-American women who worked at NASA as mathematicians in the 20th Century. Explores teams of segregation, racism, and gender biases. An inspiring oath to the voices and work of the women who were silenced by the conditions of their time, but who never stopped striving for their dream careers.

Through a personal and uplifting lens, the documentary "Becoming" provides viewers with an up-close look into the life and career of Michelle Obama. In it, Michelle Obama talks about the challenges she faced throughout her life and leaves a hopeful message about the importance of writing your own story.



The Help (2011)

Set during the Civil Rights Movement, "The Help" tells the story of a young woman and aspiring journalist, who decides to write the story of her two African American maids. This work exposes society to the racism and discrimination that domestic workers of color experienced in America, in the 1960's. It is a heartbreaking, entertaining, and touching work on the lives of those who are not often enough in the foreground.



The Color Purple (2023)

For those who enjoy a good musical, this is the perfect movie for you. Combining the hardships of women and the beauty of sisterhood, this movie is a testament to female resilience and support.



On The Basis Of Sex (2018)

"On The Basis Of Sex" is a biographical film, inspired by the life and early career of Ruth Bader Ginsburg - the second woman to work as an Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court. Starting and building her career in a men-dominated field, the idealistic and strong female lead materializes the power of authenticity and perseverance when exposed to sexism and racism.



We hope you enjoy this list of oaths and testimonials to the complex, heartbreaking, and heartwarming lives of women.
