This decade has been the womanâ€™s decade. Be it Hilary Clinton, or Malala - women everywhere are making history and we couldn't be more proud! Becoming such strong independent women is no easy task. We must kick back and relax from time to time. We've got you covered - here is a list of 8 movies by Zainab Masood that every woman MUST watch AlONE. Simply because they CAN!
1. Mona Lisa Smile
Synopsis: The movie mainly revolves around Katherine Watson, a free-spirited recent graduateÂ of UCLA, who has accepted a job offer at the Wellesley College, which happens to be a women-Â only school. She observes that how the girls are torn between choosing between what they areÂ offered and what they desire- a struggle for their freedom and equality and so helps themÂ question their self-worth and abilities.
All the girls who struggling with what they are meant to do with their lives and are unable to findÂ their pathways, should watch this one for a kick of motivation and a journey of knowing oneself!
2. Devil Wears Prada
Synopsis: A smart and sensible graduate, who is pretty career oriented, lands up working for anÂ over-demanding and rather challenging Editor-in- chief, Miranda Priestly, of a high end fashionÂ magazine. The plots gets interesting with the problems that poor Andrea faces, while doing theÂ job â€œa million girls would kill forâ€.
This one goes out to all those brave ladies who face their ever-so- moody bosses and unwillingly,Â heartbreakingly, and very, very sadly have to still keep going. We are in this TOGETHER!
(Coming from a personal experience *sigh*)
3. Erin Brockovich
Synopsis: An unemployed single parent turns into a lawful partner and verging on without anyÂ assistance cuts down a California power organization blamed for contaminating a city’s waterÂ supply, all alone.
This is important for all the women to watch, to understand and adjust themselves to the fact,Â that all women, once motivated and focused enough, can achieve even the most impossible ofÂ things-single-handedly. Yeap, you read that right, WITHOUT the help of men.
4. Eat Pray Love
Synopsis: A married woman acknowledges how miserable her marriage truly is, and that her lifeÂ needs to go in an alternate heading. After a rather painful separation from her husband, sheÂ takes off on a round-the- world tour to get to know herself.
This is a must watch for us woman to understand that settling in any relationship or phase of lifeÂ is never a choice, because one eventually ends up being unhappy. So, love yourself and knowÂ yourself before you choose do it for someone else.
Synopsis: Queen is the account of Rani Mehra, a young lady from Delhi who is raised in aÂ cherishing, defensive Indian family, where her companions choose what her life will resemble.Â Rani is put into a circumstance where she at long last settles on the most improbable choice ofÂ her life; she chooses to go on her vacation alone!
Because no one teaches us how to get over an unfortunate life event or learn how to travel alone,Â better than Rani and so this one is highly recommended.
6. Easy A
Synopsis: A neat and tidy high school student depends on the school’s talk factory to propel herÂ social standing and ends up stuck in her own mess.
No one can give us lessons how to deal with bullies better than Emma Stone in Easy A. LearnÂ and deal with them accordingly, dear girls.
7. The Help
Synopsis: A yearning writer amid the social equality development of the 1960’s chooses toÂ compose a book specifying the African-American cleaning specialists; perspective on the whiteÂ families for which they work, and the hardships they experience every day.
This movie will wake you up from your deep slumber and give you a major insight into how cruel theÂ world can be and how unfairly it might treat us sometimes, yet all we can cling to at such pointsÂ is hope; hope for a better future.
8. Pretty Woman
Synopsis: A man in a legal yet destructive business needs an escort for some get-togethers, andÂ plans to hire a lovely prostitute he meets coincidentally… just to fall head over heels in love withÂ her.
This one is important to watch ladiesâ€¦ simply to restore our faith in clichÃ©, romantic, chick-Â flicks because obviously none of us are spending our lives alone with dozens of cats.
P.S. Julia Roberts rules women oriented movies and will shall be eternally grateful for herÂ existence.
