A Girl Power Guide to Netflix

As a creative myself, I think it’s important to support other female creatives in anyway that I can. Whether it’s supporting a small business, listening to female fronted bands/musicians or just simply assisting your female friends in their personal and professional goals. You might remember me sharing a Girl Power Playlist full of amazing female musicians on here a little while ago.ย With this in mind, I thought I’d continue my theme of female support with a guide to female fronted TV shows and films on Netflix. Recently I’ve been watching some really great films and TV shows with female leads. I noted down my favourites and thought I’d share my discoveries with you all.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

This is the show that I’ve started watching most recently and I am OBSESSED. I love a good 30-minute long TV show because you can just sit back and binge a few episodes in an evening. Plus, the fact that this also has a banging theme song had me instantly hooked. If you haven’t heard of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt already, it follows Kimmy as she moves to New York city after being trapped in an underground doomsday bunker for 15 years. Pretty weird concept, right?!

The Intern

Before it had even come onto Netflix a few weeks ago I’d already seen this film a few times and it’s one of my absolute favourites. Not only does it star Anne Hathaway (who doesn’t love her?!) but it follows her character’s fashion business throughout the film. I’m such a huge fan of any films/programmes where the focus is on a female-run business. Growing up watching the Devil Wears Prada had me wanting to work in a super cool office environment when I was older so I always fall in love with films that include that setting!

Girlboss

I mean, it’s in the name really isn’t it? This was a series that I watched about 6 or so months ago but I just had to include it for the title alone. Girlboss follows Sophia and her journey to developing Nasty Gal which I’m guessing a fair few of you will have heard of! Even if you’re just looking for a bit of fashion inspiration this show is worth a watch. She rocks some pretty amazing pieces (just look at that jacket!!).

Thanks for reading! I hope you all enjoyed this little bit of girl power and feel inspired to have a look into my Netflix suggestions next time you have some free time. Don’t forget to check out my Girl Power Playlist to embody full boss mode!

    great suggestions, I haven’t watched any of these, I tried to give Girl Boss ago but I couldn’t get into it! I know I am going to like The Intern though purely because of Anne Hathaway!! x

    I’ve had The Intern on my list for the last week or two- been dying to watch it because I love Anne Hathaway, and who doesn’t love a good woman in business, as you said? Is Girlboss a true story, so? Both added on my list, can’t wait to start watching them!! x
