Empowering women - films and songs

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
So Valentines day is around the corner, I am happily single. Having a couple of the girls over on the 14th for a celebration of our singleness and to celebrate Randomcat's 4th birthday. What films would be good to watch that are about strong single women being empowered? And what about music to listen to?

    Wajda (I think this is how you spell it) It's the first Saudi Arabian film directed by a woman, and it's about a little girl who rides a bike and does other stuff that girls aren't allowed to do.

    Thelma and Louise.

    Volver.

    Volver for sure! Anything by Almodovar, actually. I also love, for a bit of a giggle, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.
