This International Women’s Day may be a little different with the COVID-19 pandemic still looming, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t safe ways to celebrate and support women’s rights and achievements right from your home. With this year’s theme being Choose to Challenge, an initiative encouraging women to speak out on, or challenge topics to bring about change, there are many ways to celebrate and contribute to the movement. Keep reading to find out some different options.

Watch Films and Television With Strong Female Leads

Firefly Lane

Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke star in one of Netflix’s latest girl-power shows, Firefly Lane. The 10 episode series follows Tully Hart (Heigl) and Kate Mularkey (Chalke) as they steer through 30 years of friendship. The show follows them from their early teenage years, through college, and into their early forties dealing with loneliness, success, past trauma, independence, and through it all- remaining true to one another as best friends.

The Crown

For anyone obsessed with the royals, The Crown is the perfect show for you to watch this International Women’s Day. In four seasons, the show follows the story of Queen Elizabeth II from the time she was coronated as Queen of England in 1953 at only 27 years old to the latest season, which documents the early stages of Princess Diana’s marriage to Prince Charles, in which Emma Corrin does a flawless job at replicating the now-deceased princess. A popular topic in recent news given Charles’ and Diana’s youngest son, Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, the show is just what viewers need to clarify the hardships placed upon women in the monarchy – particularly women coming from non-traditional backgrounds or those that display more heart than business.

The Undoing

After its release earlier this year on HBO Max, The Undoing starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant as husband and wife, has already been nominated for multiple awards. After a woman is brutally murdered and Jonathan Fraser (Grant) becomes a prime suspect, Grace Fraser (Kidman) must decide whether to stand by her husband or question the man she had been married to for so long. Kidman puts on an emotionally gripping performance during the entirety of the show, which primarily focuses on her point-of-view on the situation. Her character, a respected therapist, struggles with the realistic aspect of going back-and-forth between truth and deceit and ultimately sticks to her gut-feeling, teaching women that it’s okay to do the same.


Phoebe Dynevor stars as Daphne Bridgerton. Screenshot courtesy of Bridgerton / Netflix

Bridgerton stars a plethora of feminist-inspired characters. From Phoebe Dynevor’s portrayal of Daphne Bridgerton and her desire to marry for love rather than money to Golda Rosheuvel starring as Queen Charlotte, the show heavily relies on the female-perspective during the social season of 1813. Daphne’s younger sister, Eloise, is a large part in not following societal standards, wishing to find more to life than a husband and children. Bridgerton hones in on female sexuality more-so than the male counterpart and offers a love story that anyone can enjoy.

Someone Great

Netflix’s 2019 film Someone Great, starring Gina Rodriguez, is the epitome of a feminist-provoked breakup. Looking to further her career as a journalist across the country, Rodriguez’s character, Jenny, endures a breakup with her long-term boyfriend. The film follows her over the course of the day as she goes through all the stages of a breakup: sadness, flashbacks, turning to her girlfriends, partying, and ultimately coming to the realization that she didn’t need him in order to be happy.

Malcolm and Marie

I think it’s safe to say that anything starring Zendaya is bound to be inspiring in some type of way. Malcolm and Marie was one of Hollywood’s first feature films to be written, funded, and produced during the pandemic. The story follows a couple as they spend the night discussing where they stand in their relationship. Zendaya’s character, Marie, is a caustic, strong-willed woman, who is not afraid to stand up for herself and bring up the flaws in her relationship.
