Films that Embrace Sisterhood

A list comprising of films that embrace sisterhood. I read a book called "Enlightened Sexism" and the author argued the importance of sisterhood. Several films and reality shows pit women against one another rather than having them work together to achieve a goal. Films like "A League of their Own," or "Gentleman Prefer Blondes" show women in a positive light and focus on their problems in a realistic fashion.

  • How would sisterhood be defined? I assume it would be in terms of feminism. There would have to be a common trend which is prevalent within all the examples you would wish to use. – Ryan Errington 7 years ago
  • In my experience, women generally don't have each other's back. Maybe that's why it's not common to see women supporting other women on film. – LaurenCarr 7 years ago
  • It could be interesting to see the trends of target audiences as well: are films that portray women as friends and working together more targeted to female audiences? – bookworm2g9 7 years ago
  • "Strong women build each other up rather than put each other down" - I think this could be a great article - you could even link it into the Frozen craziness, how come the sisterly love was so surprising? – Francesca Turauskis 7 years ago
