3 feisty women in film who fired me up in 2020
One upside (!?!) from staying at home in 2020 was more TV time. I take my inspiration where I find it so here are three women who really fired me up throughout a tough year.
1. Borgen’s Birgitte Nyborg Christensen – if you haven’t watched Borgen yet, you must. Nyborg (played by Sidse Babett Knudsen and believed to be based on Denmarks 1st female PM) is strong, feminine, believable & idealistic all in one, taking negotiating, collaborating and pulling a rabbit out of a hat to the next level. If you haven’t seen this politico drama yet, get online now. #staytrue
2. Saga Noren in The Bridge, played by Sofia Helin. Saga is brilliant, but emotionally detached as a Swedish police detective investigating gruesome murders on the border between Denmark and Sweden. She takes a couple of episodes to warm up to, but once you do, she is inspiring. #ownyourquirks
3. Helen Reddy played by Tilda Cobham-Hervey in I Am Woman – a biographical film about her life and a snapshot of the feminist movement in the 70s. Who knew she had so much impact on so many women for so many years? Warning! Singing along may result. #speakyourtruth (Vale Helen Reddy)
WHAT DID YOU WATCH that fired up your inner feminist?
