13 Movies That Every Woman Should Watch At Least Once in Their Lifetime

Some movies come with life-changing messages. This list contains such gems. So, sit back and stream away!

There is no doubt about the fact that movies have a way of evoking emotions in us that we don't really expect them to. Some of the emotions can be strong and stay with us for a long, long time, and some of them are fleeting. There are certain movies that resonate and relate more to either of the genders. But this is not what this list is about. Instead, it is a list of movies that every human should watch in order to learn something. Additionally, these movies also help little girls aspire to become the strong women they want to be. To become their own idols and to never let the world bring them down. 

1. Million Dollar Baby


This movie beautifully throws every stereotype about a girl out of the window and it rightfully points out that even though age can slow us down physically, it can never wither out spirits. This is exactly the lesson Maggie Fitzgerald gives us and from her, we all need to learn that dreams are not bound in anything and all of us have the potential to achieve our dreams. 

2. The Devil Wears Prada


An iconic movie by Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway, this movie shows that Miranda Priestly is a woman who runs the world. Even though Andrea is different from Miranda, she is perfect in her own way. You can relate or aspire to be either of the characters and won't regret a bit because that's how amazing they are and that's how well they hold it in their own. Additionally, the movie is hilarious and the fashion game is on point. 

3. An Education


This brilliant movie shows Jenny Mellor as a teenager, but, not too long into the movie, you can figure out that she is quite lost. On top of this, she is being wooed by a man who is twice her age. The most important lesson that the movie gives is that any of us can be in a similar situation and the most amazing part is that her character shows it's absolutely okay to be wrong and lost at times. But, in the end, we always find our way back. 

4. Queen


This amazing Bollywood movie shows how badass a woman can be, and even being rejected at the altar cannot diminish her spirit. Rani taught us that it is great to love your family and friends, but when it is needed, you need to put your foot down and stand up for yourself. 

5. Little Miss Sunshine


Olive is a girl who basically gives everyone confidence goals. She is a chubby, bespectacled girl and she is absolutely fabulous on her own. She might doubt herself at some point, but she also knows that there is no one quite like her. And that is something that we all should remember and abide by. 

6. Gone With The Wind


This classic movie revolves around the story of the will to survive and prosper, and shows a woman with a completely formidable spirit who is out in the wild to change the world and the way she does it will leave you wondering.

This movie shows the power of female friendship so beautifully and no movie has even come close since then. The movie tells the story of two women who take a break from their usual lives and go on a road trip. But, things quickly get out of hand and they are pitted against the entire world in order to survive and they only have each other. 

8. Easy A


This movie gives it in the face of school bullies as Olive is seen to embrace her new reputation as a 'lesser woman'. This brilliant movie sends a message to young women to not let other's perspectives change or affect them at all. It also teaches how to show the bird to the people who have nothing better to do rather than talking behind your back.

9. Gravity


Not only is this movie a brilliant form of cinema, but it also shows what happens when you pit two forces to reckon with against each other. Regarded as one of the most uplifting and inspiring stories about an individual, but it also flawlessly portrays the indomitable spirit of women and how they can beat any grave or difficult situation she comes across.

10. The Blind Side


This movie tells the story behind the making of NFL player, Michael Oher, who has gone to play for the Baltimore Raven and the Tennessee Titans and is currently playing for the Carolina Panthers.

11. Coco Before Chanel


Coco Chanel, from the very beginnig has been a force to be reckoned with and the movie shows how she went on to become the absolute boss of an empire that is still thriving to this date. The journey of Coco Chanel is inspiring and this movie shows what Coco Chanel would do herself, which is not to over-sentimentalize her struggling years. 

12. Mulan


Mulan is a movie that goes to prove that all Disney princesses are not frail and delicate. In this movie, Disney attempts to break its own stereotype and they do it beautifully. The movie is fierce with a successful end with the protagonist who fought along with the men to save the kingdom from the Huns.  

13. Blue Is The Warmest Color


This heartwrenching love story of two women shows the rosy tints of first love, which is then followed by the grey clouds that is created by the struggles and then the ultimate demise of the love that we saw blossoming right in front of our eyes. One of the most heart-wrenching movies of all time, the best part is that it makes to extra noise about the fact that there are two women involved in it and this is where the main beauty lies.
