See free films about powerful women during Women’s History Month

by Allison Hatfield | March 1, 2020

March is Women’s History Month, and in both Dallas and Fort Worth there are plenty of chances to see movies about powerful women for free. These flicks showcase women who bravely pushed the boundaries of society, fighting for what they believed in and challenging the way others thought.

Women make up half the population and yet “women continue to be underrepresented in high-level, highly paid positions and overrepresented in low-paying jobs. Women of color and transgender individuals experience particularly high levels of poverty, unemployment, and other economic hardships. Gender discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace contribute significantly to these persistent economic divides,” states inequality.org.

Things get better by inches, and these movies tell those stories.
