List: Top 3 Women Rights Movies

List: Top 3 Women Rights Movies

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed Suffragette, starring Carey Mulligan, which covered the beginning of the British Suffragette movement in the early 1900’s. Inspired by that, we decided to discuss our Top 3 women rights or women empowerment movies. And while some of our picks may seem like movies with just strong female characters, given the context of our criteria, we’d argue that the female roles in these films, blended with the films themes, definitely represent female empowerment. And as mentioned above, we are proud of this discussion and we hope you enjoy it.

That being said, what Top 3 women rights or women empowerment movies would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:

3) Mulan
