22 Female-Centric Movies You Need To Watch At Least Once

I am buoyant and expansive and uncontainable–but I always was so, only I never knew it! – Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

Women hold within themselves an entire world. Not literally, because they kind of do that too, but in a more sublime and visceral manner. Within them rests anguish, grace, anger, calm, beauty, wonder, mystery, ambition, intelligence, and compromise. Each element honed to perfection at moments that demand their visibility. These moments have found themselves seared into our memories via certain movies that send a shiver down our spines every time we watch them, because they bring about the lightness a woman represents. There is an abandon with which every woman operates, she embraces all that comes to her, she does it while honouring her own honour, she does it while saving someone she loves, while bequeathing justice onto someone else, when she takes care of a legacy, when she removes herself as a priority, to see what she can do, to be what she can be, and ultimately where she evolves as someone fierce, undaunted, and generous.

These movies are an ode to all the women who go out every day to make a difference, small or big, for those near or far, so she can carve an identity for millions like her who will look up to her for inspiration.
