BEAUTY IN STRENGTH

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Culture -

BAZAAR cel­e­brates films where women un­locked life achieve­ments, and were bold in the face of hard­ships.

SUF­FRAGETTE

An in­sight into the women’s suf­frage move­ment in the early 20th cen­tury, Suf­fragette por­trays the strug­gles of the first few women who fought for gen­der equal­ity— their unity and per­sis­tence serv­ing to em­power women ev­ery­where.

KILL BILL

Be­sides be­ing a cult fe­male-em­pow­er­ment flick, Kill Bill is re­spon­si­ble for some iconic looks. If watch­ing Uma Thur­man’s per­for­mance as The Bride doesn’t pump you up to kick some se­ri­ous butt, we don’t know what will. Strong, in­de­pen­dent women who won’t take no for an an­swer? We’ll hop on that p*ssy wagon.

THE HELP

Set in Mis­sis­sippi, US, in the 1960s, The Help ex­plores the lives of African Amer­i­can maids and the civil rights move­ments by way of Skeeter, played by Emma Stone, a jour­nal­ist who doc­u­ments the plight of coloured women and gen­der bar­ri­ers.
