Real to Reel : 5 inspiring women

I am a big fan of Iconic Rosie the Riveter. I see the women who inspire me and I see “Rosie the Riveter” in each one of them. These Iconic females have proved the slogan, we can do it. They really did it. And not only did they become idols of many and immortals in the pages of history, great movies have been made on their true story and some of them are so inspiring that we watch it over and over again. This is the list of 5 finest movies (reels) based on real inspiring stories of women.

Real to Reel : 9 inspiring women

Real to Reel. 5 inspiring women zhwadevivre arohii

The Iron Lady

Meryl Streep doesn’t fail to Portray brilliantly the character of Margaret Thatcher, on whom this movie is based. Margaret Thatcher was the first woman to become the prime minister of Great Britain. In this movie, nostalgic Margaret, who now is old and dementia stricken reflects back on her life and remembers her past from young to old age. We can see how she struggled in the male dominated world of politics and what she sacrificed on her way to success. One of my favorite scenes from the movie is when she learns to correct her pitch and speak efficiently. Meryl Streep bagged Oscars for the Iron Lady.

Erin Brockovich

Erin Brockovich is based on a true story of an American woman with the same name. What’s the real life Erin has achieved is that, she filed a lawsuit against a company which was responsible for contamination of water by chromium. Which further caused serious health issues like cancer in people of that area. The notable thing about Erin was that she had no experience or proper education in Law and yet she fought and won against the wrong & powerful.

Zero Dark Thirty

When it comes to bravery and Patriotism, women are no less than a man. Zero Dark Thirty is based on an operation involving the CIA in tracking down Osama Bin Laden. During this operation, a fictional woman named Maya, who played CIA intelligence analyst an important role in the success of the operation. This movie created a lot of controversy and Lindsay Moran, the real life Maya (I would like to believe that) left CIA in 2003. She now is a freelance writer and is an author of a book, Blowing my cover.

Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth was a survivor. Against all odds, she achieved perfection in being a Ruler. Her Journey to being a Monarch was not an easy one and hence, a movie based on the true life of the queen who reigned during the golden age, is a must watch for each and every woman.

    It’s nice to see that the iconic Rosie the Riveter still has the universal message to inspire future generations of remarkable women as much as she is an inspiration to me in my own days.

    I now also see the reason why I gravitate to certain movie selections, including those among the ones you’ve listed! Arohi, you have such a knack and talent for putting these archive-quality distillations together for us. You are one remarkable individual.

    Tens of thousands of Rosie the Riveters worked in Detroit, which was the center of US industry and known as the Arsenal of Democracy during World War II. Dozens of car plants were converted to rolling out tanks and airplanes. These “Rosies,” now in their 90s, were celebrated at the famous Willow Run plant near here. The story is at this link

    What a fantastic post. Some very inspirational women. I saw Hidden Figures the other day and quoted it on my blog the next day. Three heroes in one film. I’m hoping one day they make a film on Nellie Bly.
