Female Badasses to Stream for International Women’s Day 2020
There are plenty of fierce females that inspire us each and every day, both on-screen and off. So as you’re taking a day for yourself this International Women’s Day, we’ve got some badasses on the screen for you! For this article, we’re taking it to Hulu to discuss two of our favorite shows, Dollface and High Fidelity! Keep reading for why you should watch these ladies!
They’re True To Themselves
We were truly blessed with stars like Kat Dennings, Brenda Song, Shay Mitchell, Esther Povitsky, Zoe Kravitz, and Da’Vine Joy Randolph gracing our screens. From Jules (Dennings) learning that she doesn’t need a man. To Rob (Kravitz) rehashing her dating history to see where it all went wrong. We got to see these women find themselves and each other and what a beautiful start to their journeys it was.
Jules had a rough go of things when she realized how much she had alienated her best friends for her boyfriend. But she was willing to show up and step outside her comfort zone to get them back. Along the way, they added Izzy (Povitsky) to their group and have developed a better bond than ever before. Rob has some amazing friends that stand by her, but dealing with exes can be hard. Dealing with where all your old relationships went wrong can be even harder. Almost as difficult as creating the perfect playlist about it. Which is why it was perfect for Rob to have someone like Cherise (Randolph) at her side.
They’re Bold, Brave, and Brutally Honest
Stella (Mitchell) is nothing if not honest. Whether she’s telling Madison (Song) that her outfit is not on point or she’s letting Izzy know she needs to take things down a notch. She isn’t afraid to be herself and be honest with her friends even if it’s something they don’t want to hear. Stella is also unashamed of who she is and we love that she owns it. There is nothing wrong with being open about every topic, including your sexuality.
Being friends with Stella has clearly helped Madison speak her mind even more. And it’s certainly helped Izzy find her inner self-confidence. Be who you are and be proud seems to be Stella’s motto and we could all do to hear that a bit more often. Jules had a bit of a struggle with her confidence after everything she had been through and we think Stella was a major part of helping her get through that.
They Aren’t Perfect
Sometimes it can feel like other women around us really have their shit together. Which can sometimes make us feel worse if we don’t feel like we have ours together. Then we turn on the television and we see perfectly made-up women who seem to have it all. But the women of High Fidelity and Dollface are definitely not that. And it’s wonderful! Because it makes them relatable. They’re normal. We could definitely do with seeing a lot more of that on our screens.
Rob has messed up her relationships and she has perfected the art of self-sabotage. Jules ignored her friends in favor of her boyfriend. Madison got herself in a situation that led to her being the other woman. They all have issues, just like we do. But watching them find their way to the other side of those situations? Pure magic. Watching them find their way to lifelong friends and discovering who they are along the way? Yeah, we’re going to need to see a lot more of that. A lot.
So Why Not
If you haven’t watched these shows, there is no better time than today. Especially since it’s International Women’s Day! What better way to celebrate than sitting back, relaxing, and watching women you can relate to kick ass? We certainly can’t think of a better day than that! So get yourself some drinks, good food, and turn on the Hulu so you can get streaming!
