FEMALE EMPOWERMENT NETFLIX MOVIES
A movie that describes Joy’s adventure while she is out on the road. Inspiring for those who want or are entering the world of entrepreneurship.
Became one of top 10 favorite Netflix series and movies. Apart from showing us a different parenting than we are used to, Enola Holmes shows us what feminism and female empowerment looks like from home. It takes place in old England, where Feminism begins to spread.
Nappily ever after
A wonderful film about what we’ve been told beauty is and how stereotypes bind us to versions that never represent us.
I Care a Lot
It’s a bit of a controversial movie, because empowerment is expressed a ton, but there are also “shark mentality” abuse themes that I disagree with. But don’t take it that way, actually what I want to highlight about this movie is the empowerment and the performance of Eiza González, a Mexican actress who has shown us real empowerment.
The Good Wife
A deeply reflective film about the wife who submits to living under the shadow of her husband, thus nullifying her vocation and dreams. Realizing what is happening, the protagonist decides to raise her voice and go for what she wants.

A great film that shows the intense struggle of women for their right to vote and the impotence and cruelty of the patriarchal society to preserve its privileges.
One of the latest Netflix releases of female empowerment and feminism, a teenage story that shows us how machismo affects our society, as well as how it feels to be a woman and how complicated it often is. It is one of those movies that make you feel proud to be a woman.

It shows the importance of the role of women and places it as an example in a marriage, it makes you see those small samples of what is called micromachismos in society.
I love this movie, they expose the problems that a successful woman entrepreneur is involved in these times, but above all they convey many of the ways of empowerment so that those problems do not stop the success.
A documentary that discusses sexism in American society and media.
This serie has me totally hooked because of its filming in Berlin, it makes me remember how great this city can be. It’s based on a true story, a girl from a Hasidic community in Williamsburg, NY. She objects to living a married life with someone she doesn’t love and escapes to Berlin. She conveys to us the right to have our own voice.
Series that addresses political issues in Denmark, where the protagonist is a woman who demonstrates her leadership and empowerment.
A Mexican series that gives the impression that it is full of clichés, however, it shows us a lot of sorority and self-discovery through its 4 main characters.
An American series where Sophia starts her own business selling vintage clothes and becomes so successful that she becomes a businesswoman.
The Queen’s Gambit
Although it is a very superb series, the message goes more to feminism and empowerment, as it shows us how women can excel in a sport that was once dominated by men.
One of the best empowerment series based on the biography On Her Own Groun, it tells us the story of a woman who fights for what she wants and doesn’t let herself be defeated by anything. The central themes are motivation, self-improvement and entrepreneurship.
Anne with e
One of my favorite series ever. It makes us see how women were treated in the 80’s. Anne, an adopted girl, but with a totally different thinking to the girls of that time, defends women and expresses her nonconformities with the inhabitants where she lives.
You can also find her in 10 series to expand your consciousness.

It is based on the defense about women and their rights of those times which still works today.
Based on a novel by Margaret Atwood , it sums up quite well the obsession with stereotyping women when they are involved in a crime.

It tells the story of Rita, a teacher and single mother of 3 children. She dares to do what many don’t do to look good.
It’s a series that deals with the everyday problems we all go through, but told in a real and comical way. Like having bodies that are NOT perfect, and talking about sex without a barrier.
Cosai mais Linda
It shows the struggle of women to achieve their emancipation in a macho society.
A series that talks about how to carry work and motherhood in the 21st century.
Grace and Frankie

It is focused on commemorating the 70th anniversary of World War II from the point of view of women and how was their participation within it.
Emily in Paris
A romantic series about Emily a girl from Chicago who moves for work to Paris, despite being a series with many stereotypes not exactly real, it conveys how a woman can achieve what she sets out even living abroad.
In this series the characters of the first two seasons get into the role very well narrating the story of the most powerful and famous woman in the world in her younger years entering us to know the life we never thought we would know.
Although this series is not exactly about empowerment, the female protagonist immerses us in a terrifying future, especially for us women, to which we could arrive if we let ourselves be guided by fear and patriarchy for not expressing ourselves and giving her value.
Based on the true story of Selena, the queen of Tex-Mex, this movie has become my top 10. It reveals many facts about Selena’s teenage life and without a doubt it conveys all the charisma and empowerment that Selena had in real life. It is a story with a sad ending, but with a great legacy left by the singer.
The bold type
My favorite of the moment. I love this series, it’s about the life of 3 millennial girls who live in New York and work in a popular magazine. Although it can be seen as a typical American series, this series is more than that, it’s really a series with current women’s issues like racism, patriarchy, taboo issues, inclusion, diversity, and more. Super good for female empowerment sorority among women.
