12 female-fronted action movies to watch on Netflix right now
We all KNOW women rock, make things happen, rule the world, have brilliant minds, and kick major ass. But how often are these realities represented in the media? Netflix is helping us out, constantly streaming action flicks that feature females front-and-center.
Over the last decade, television producers, writers and directors have been slowly but steadily creating more inspiring female-driven roles and perspectives than ever before. This year’s Emmy’s showcased some of these women-centric roles and the #bosslady actors that portrayed them.
Jessica Jones, Supergirl, Kimmy Schmidt. Just a few of the smart, complex, inspiring female characters ruling the airwaves today. During Sunday’s Emmy’s, Netflix previewed a new “She Rules” ad highlighting some of the females characters who are available for #bingewatching right now.
