It’s International Women’s Day and we at Netflix thinks that they’re wicked awesome!
To all the beautiful mamas, the lovely girls, and the strong women, we want to celebrate this day together with you and some of the kick @$$ female characters on Netflix.
You could be trying to navigate through life with your all-out positivity (Kimmy Schmidt in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), leading a family through a big transition (Queen Elizabeth of The Crown) or somehow finding yourself as a downright reluctant hero (Jessica Jones in Marvel’s Jessica Jones), remember, you are AWESOME.
Even when at a time when you find yourself in a difficult situation but found strength in friendship (Grace and Frankie in Grace and Frankie) or on the path to self discovery, (Eleven in Stranger Things), don’t ever doubt yourself because you’re golden and no one can tell you otherwise!
So, take this time to give yourself that well deserved TLC by bingeing on your favourite movies and series on Netflix. With the new download feature, you can now download selected movies and series on your phone (or SD card). It’s so convenient that you can stream your favourite content on Netflix anytime, anywhere, even on-the-go with zero commercials!
Or, a better idea is to host a girls’ night-in with your bffs. All you need is Netflix and a binge basket. Yes, we’ve gotten that sorted out for you as well!
Get dressed in your most comfy pjs, put your feet up, get the your snacks ready, turn on your Netflix and start bingeing. Have fun and we hope you’ll enjoy this International Women’s Day.
