Today is March 8—Women’s International Day— and although we don’t need a day to praise our womanhood, we still celebrate it anyway. “Women are going to form a chain, a greater sisterhood than the world has ever known,” feminist and author, Nellie L. McClung, once said and it is true! From Orange Is The New Black, Cable Girls to Lady Dynamite, all five of them feature women in leading roles showing us how different each lady is, but also how we can reunite and become one; be it a crisis, a relationship between a mother and her daughter or two complete rivals. What better way to celebrate women’s day than to watch how women back each other’s up?
1. Orange Is The New Black
Get a sneak peak to the stories of different black women in a prison and how they support each other; the true meaning of how power and influence can be achieved through coming together and having each other’s backs. Orange Is The New Black gives us fearless, strong and complicated characters like Piper, Poussey and Sophia.
2. Gilmore Girls
A comedy-drama TV show starring Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel. It features the story of Lorelai, a single mother in her thirties, and how she deals with her teenage daughter, Rory. They live in in fictional town called Stars Hollow, Connecticut.
3. Grace And Frankie
An inspiring story, Grace and Frankie is all about the feels; imagine what would happen if two strong women in their 50s find out about their cheating husbands and then unite together. How to cope in this situation is what Frankie as Lily Tomlin, and Grace as Jane Fonda lightly show us in a dramatic rather comedian series of events.
4. Cable Girls
Taking us back to the 1920s, Cable Girls is a Spanish drama that tells the story of four women, with different backgrounds, who just got hired in a phone company as operators. It stars Ana Fernández, Nadia de Santiago as well as Blanca Suárez and Maggie Civantos.
5. Lady Dynamite
Lady Dynamite is an American comedy show that teaches us how to find ourselves amid all the chaos in our life. The episodes revolve around the main character, Maria Bamford, and how she loses herself only then find it again.
