Everything you need to watch on Netflix this month
Netflix n chill
The March line-up for streaming giant Netflix honours powerful women and their stories in celebration of International Women's Day (March 8); meaning you don't have to leave your couch to get your girl-power fix (because us hard working women need their couch time too!). From Marvel's Jessica Jones, to Drew Barrymore's zombie comedy Santa Clarita Diet, it's all about women who are breaking stereotypes and pushing boundaries. And when it comes to powerful women, it doesn't get much bigger than Wonder Woman herself. Here are the new releases you need to watch on Netflix this March.
A documentary on the true story of Olympian Deepika Kumari, who at the age of twelve left home to pursue archery (a decision that is unheard of for Indian women). Within four years, Kumari was the number one archer in the world, inspiring young girls and boys to break the chain of gender stereotypes. Ladies First premieres on Netflix March 8.
Marvel's Jessica Jones (season 2)
New York City's tough-as-hell private investigator is back, however this time the investigation is targeted to herself and her origins as a superhero. In a coincidental homage to International Women's Day, every single episode of season 2 was directed by a woman. Marvel's Jessica Jones premieres on Netflix March 8.
No one exudes the power of women more than Wonder Woman herself. The superhero film that brought the stunning Gal Gadot to the big screen will be dropping on Netflix this month just in time for International Women's Day. The film was directed by Patti Jenkins, who is also set to write, direct and produce the Wonder Woman sequel for US $8 million, making her the highest paid female director of all time. How's that for double girl power! Wonder Woman premieres on Netflix March 20.
My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman
David Letterman interviews Malala Yousafzai on his Netflix exclusive program this month. Yousafzai is a Pakistani activist who at the age of 17 became the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. She is known for her advocacy for human rights, in particular the education of women in northwest Pakistan, where the Taliban had banned girls from attending school. My Next Guess Needs No Introduction with David Letterman premieres on Netflix March 9.
