Film Quiz: Inspirational Women

After seeing Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Alien Covenant on the same day, I twice saw the trailer for Wonder Woman (and what looks to be the woeful King Arthur: Legend of the Sword). DC will be hoping for success for its empowering heroine to match films within the Marvel Universe. It got me thinking about what other Hollywood females have been inspiring viewers through the decades. How many did you get? Are there others that inspire you?

Hidden Figures Day 24

Vivian Mitchell: Despite what you may think, I have nothing against y’all.
Dorothy Vaughan: I know… I know you probably believe that.

Kirsten Dunst and Octavia Spencer in the truly inspirational Hidden Figures (2016). Based on the true story as told in the book of the same name by Margot Lee Shetterly, the film tells of three black women who served a vital role in the early period of the Space Race. Highlighting that heroes can be found in all places, it reminds us of the outrageous racist prejudice that existed at the time and the grace, effort and ingenuity needed to overcome it.
