Woman's History Month is in full swing.  We've looked at the origins of Women's History Monthseen a 3D version of Amelia Earhart's flight suitlearned about databases devoted to women and their history; and heard stirring words from some very inspirational women.  Now it's time to switch gears and chill.  We're going to the movies. 

Below, The 11 Best Movies To Celebrate Women's History Month, with related media available through the TWU Libraries.  Any such list, of course, is in the eye of the beholder.  Nonetheless, the titles featured here remind us that all over the world, in all types of circumstances, women are strong, funny, brave, smart, resilient and supremely capable.


To browse the TWU Libraries' DVD collection, ask for the DVD List--an alphabetical listing of the titles we carry--at the Circulation Desk of the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus (940-898-3719).  You can also search for a specific title in the TWU Libraries catalog.    

However you do it, honoring women and women's achievements is what Women's History Month is all about.  If we can help, please let us know.
