With March being Women’s History Month, many brands and companies are showing their support and solidarity with women everywhere. As we know, women are historically underrepresented and marginalized, and the entertainment industry is still attempting to grow and make a positive change regarding the issue.
According to stats from Women And Hollywood, four percent of all directors in the television and film industry are women, while only 29 percent of women are placed in protagonist roles. It’s our duty to give shine to the women who have (and are) successfully showing out for the entire gender.
In order to keep you up-to-date with all things Netflix, VIBE has curated a list of the finest March releases the streaming service has to offer. We’ve featured films, series and specials that have amazing women at the forefront – whether in the cast or the crew.
Since Netflix is known to drop mature, necessary gems as well as new hits, we mixed it up a little by sharing some classics along with our new obsessions. Kick your feet up, grab all your favorite binge-watching snacks and prepare to hibernate for the rest of the month, as we celebrate the industry’s top women on our favorite procrastination-induced streaming platform for Women’s History Month.
