The obvious choice, this movie about the American suffragette movement is amazing. Besides the history lesson of some incredibly badass women, there’s some wonderful early 2000s indie girl pop music and some steamy moments with McDreamy.
2. A League of Their Own

And when you’re done watching this classic, spend some time on Gena Davis’ Wikipedia page. Besides being basically a real life Katniss, she’s also trying to make things better for women in the film industry.
