Netflix wants to celebrate International Women’s Day with a long list of Films and TV Series starring Women: let’s find out all the details together
March 8 is approaching and so is International Women’s Day. Netflix is preparing to celebrate the annual celebration of the female universe with a long series of films and TV series starring women who have struggled to assert one’s worth in times or societies where gender inequality was the norm, or female figures who have set records. From aspiring detectives, able to stand up to much more well-known brothers, such as the young Enola Holmes, to women who fought for their rights in environments dominated by male presence, such as the Italian lawyer Lidia Poët.
Women’s Day also on Netflix: between movies and TV series!
Real life or fruit of the imagination, inspired by great classics of literature or contemporary novels, they are female figures who have followed their dreams and their ambitions, sometimes changing not only the course of their own history, but also the history of all, paving the way for those who would come later.
