What Movie Do You Watch When You Want To Smash The Patriarchy?

Roses are red, violets are blue, the patriarchy must be systematically dismantled.

Everywhere we go, wherever we turn, there it is staring us in the face: THE PATRIARCHY.


Some days you can clench your jaw and deal. Some dude tells you to smile on your way to work? Lame, but whatever.

But other days, you just can't. Your male coworker just got a raise even though you do twice the work? HAHA OK.


And it's not just women who get the short end of the stick, my dudes. Gender prejudice is lame for men, too.

When the patriarchy is keeping you down, you need to feel seen — and sometimes that means watching a movie that helps you feel marginally less like setting the world on fire.

20th Century Fox

Maybe you identify with a specific badass character, like Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road.

Warner Bros.

Maybe you need something a little more political, like Iron Jawed Angels.


Maybe you prefer a timeless comedy about girl power. You can pick Spice World, it's cool, there are no rules here!

Columbia Pictures
