    6 Empowering Shows You Should Binge On Netflix Right Now

    Being a woman can be hard work and leave you feeling down and out on a regular basis. The best cure at the end of a long day is often a perfectly empowering show, which will restore your faith in the world (and yourself).

    Improve your Spanish and celebrate women gaining their independence by entering the job market in the 1920's. In this Netflix series, 4 young women learn the meaning of solidarity and hard work.

    What's not to love about this super energetic, progressive and extremely loving Cuban-American family?

All 3 seasons are on Netflix.

    The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling have been renewed for a third season on Netflix and I cannot wait. Watch struggling actresses become badass wrestlers while learning the true meaning of female solidarity. GLOW celebrates strong women and their rights to be entirely unique and extra. One of the best shows on female friendship ever made.

    A full time job and a kid or two. Every working mom will know what that means. Finally a show that doesn't simply show these true heroes in either situation (at work or at home) but truly depicts the struggle and the juggling that is required by every working mom in the world. Touching, eye opening and a lot of fun.

    Now in their fifth season and with a solidly established vibrators business, the two divorcees are as determined, independent and hilarious as ever. Grace and Frankie tackles sensitive topics with wit and intelligence without ever bringing your mood down. Bonus: the entire show is an amazing reminder than no matter where (and when) you are in your life, it's never too late to start an amazing new journey.

    By far the best and most fun feminist tv show of all times, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is four seasons of absolute joy and really-much-deeper-dialogues-than-what-you-think-you-just-heard. Binge it and binge it twice. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a smart and necessary commentary on women's and minorities' issues and American society as a whole. Also, you do need more Titus in your life.

    Honourable Mention to: Derry Girls, Gilmore Girls, Jessica Jones, Dear White People, Queer Eye.
