8 Movies that Every Woman Must Watch Alone


This decade has been the woman’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

Mona Lisa Smile

Synopsis: The movie mainly revolves around Katherine Watson, a free-spirited recent graduate of UCLA, who has accepted a job offer at the Wellesley College, which happens to be a women- only school. She observes that how the girls are torn between choosing between what they are offered and what they desire- a struggle for their freedom and equality and so helps them 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 find their pathways, should watch this one for a kick of motivation and a journey of knowing oneself!

2. Devil Wears Prada

The Devil Wears Prada

Synopsis: A smart and sensible graduate, who is pretty career oriented, lands up working for an over-demanding and rather challenging Editor-in- chief, Miranda Priestly, of a high end fashion magazine. The plots gets interesting with the problems that poor Andrea faces, while doing the job “a million girls would kill for”.

This one goes out to all those brave ladies who face their ever-so- moody bosses and unwillingly, heartbreakingly, and very, very sadly have to still keep going. We are in this TOGETHER!

(Coming from a personal experience *sigh*)

3. Erin Brockovich

Erin Brockovich

Synopsis: An unemployed single parent turns into a lawful partner and verging on without any assistance cuts down a California power organization blamed for contaminating a city’s water supply, all alone.

This is important for all the women to watch, to understand and adjust themselves to the fact, that all women, once motivated and focused enough, can achieve even the most impossible of things-single-handedly. Yeap, you read that right, WITHOUT the help of men.

4. Eat Pray Love

Eat Pray Love

Synopsis: A married woman acknowledges how miserable her marriage truly is, and that her life needs to go in an alternate heading. After a rather painful separation from her husband, she 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 life is never a choice, because one eventually ends up being unhappy. So, love yourself and know yourself before you choose do it for someone else.

5. Queen


Synopsis: Queen is the account of Rani Mehra, a young lady from Delhi who is raised in a cherishing, defensive Indian family, where her companions choose what her life will resemble. Rani is put into a circumstance where she at long last settles on the most improbable choice of 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, better than Rani and so this one is highly recommended.

6. Easy A

Easy A

Synopsis: A neat and tidy high school student depends on the school’s talk factory to propel her 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. Learn and deal with them accordingly, dear girls.

7. The Help

"THE HELP" 946_D_08558R In Jackson, Mississippi in 1963, (left to right) Skeeter Phelan (Emma Stone), Minnie Jackson (Octavia Spencer) and Aibileen Clark (Viola Davis) together take a risk that could have profound consequences for them all in DreamWorks Pictures' drama, "The Help", based on the New York Times best-selling novel by Kathryn Stockett.

Synopsis: A yearning writer amid the social equality development of the 1960’s chooses to compose a book specifying the African-American cleaning specialists; perspective on the white 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 the world can be and how unfairly it might treat us sometimes, yet all we can cling to at such points is hope; hope for a better future.

8. Pretty Woman

Pretty Woman

Synopsis: A man in a legal yet destructive business needs an escort for some get-togethers, and plans to hire a lovely prostitute he meets coincidentally… just to fall head over heels in love with her.

This one is important to watch ladies… simply to restore our faith in cliché, romantic, chick- 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 her existence.
