International Women’s Day (commonly called IWD) is celebrated annually on the 8th
of March. #IWD2020 is a worldwide movement and a focal point in the cause for women’s rights.
The entire month of March is dedicated to the amazing women in all their glory, in their respective fields of work, from all walks of life and all over the world. International Women’s Month in March is celebrated to raise awareness, increase visibility and celebrate women’s achievements.
This Women’s Month, OSN will celebrate the greatest achievements of all the women in film. Our list will contain animated characters and lead actresses who have not only shaped Hollywood, but also led the way for multiple new and upcoming female actors to boldly go where no woman has gone before.
Important dates to remember this month:
8 March – International Women’s Day
21 March – International Mother’s Day
Female actors are now carrying entire movies on their shoulders and breaking box office records like never before; inspiring the audience with their talent, wit, skill and strength. These amazing women have brought some great characters to life – and for that, we thank you!
Think Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, or Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music, and Carrie Fisher in Star Wars. Or more recently, Charlize Theron from Mad Max: Fury Road. These are only some of the most iconic female characters to ever grace the cinema and television screen. And we haven’t gotten to the amazing animated female lead characters like Disney’s Mulan, Moana and Princess Merida of Brave. Honestly, there are so SO many more that we haven’t mentioned yet because we would have to turn this blog post into your university essay.
Celebrate all the splendid women in cinema with OSN throughout the month of March. Watch the greatest shows, movies, comedies and Arabic movies with our top leading ladies across multiple genres.
On Sunday, 8 March (International Women’s Day), OSN will bring you the funniest women in comedy, bringing their wit, their talent, and their life to the big screen and into your home.
