Good evening beautiful souls,
In light of it being International Women’s Day I thought I would share a few of my favourite movies about strong beautiful inspirational women!! This list could be endless but here’s just a few that first came to mind.

I love all of these and highly recommend them – so if you haven’t already seen them you really should add them to your to-watch list!
