To have women play the role of a superhero, a villain, a soldier, a teacher, or a lover is one thing. Sure, it's empowering. Yet, to have the camera follow the life of a woman both in her element and out of her comfort zone is a whole new thing. That's what documentary films are for--they raise a lot of questions than just show the answers. Just like the 2014 docu-film directed by Mary Dore, She's Beautiful When She's Angry. While it is true that this is a historical film of the second-wave feminist movement in the United States, it doesn't just show you 'why' it all started. It even poses a lot more 'whys' about reproductive rights, sexual harassment, fair and just pay, and a lot more.
It doesn't require a rigid resolution, for the resolution relies on the hands of the viewers. For instance, Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus's modern feminist movie on Netflix, Hot Girls Wanted (2015). It is centered around the lives of teenagers who work as pornographic actresses. Yes, that's right, it's a job--a controversial one. Just like pornography, it remains impartial and bold enough to show all sides of the story. So, if those two mentioned Netflix films didn't help you imagine how much impact documentary and feminism could have on us, we'll leave it up to you to watch the other films included in the list below. Surely, when conflated, these two would create such an undeniable power to reach the consciousness of every person, especially women out there. So, to honor all women from all walks of life this International Women's month and beyond, here's a list of feminist movies on Netflix!
