To celebrate International Women’s Day I have teamed up with Netflix to created the ultimate round-up of my favourite brave, fearless and inspirational girls from the kid’s offerings. I want to show kids that smart is the new cool and that there’s no problem a girl can’t solve on her own! Netflix is home to girls who mean business and are committed to championing females from the youngest of ages!
As a Dad to two already awesome daughters, It’s really important to me that they grow up believing in themselves, believing that women are equal and in some cases BETTER. I want them to grow up in a world where only the sky is the limit to what they can achieve, to believe that they can be any kind of person they want to be and that opportunities exist but only for those who are bold enough to go out and get them.
With that in mind, here are my choices of the most awesome, badass, not to be messed with and in some cases underestimated girls ever. So sit back with your kids, grab some snacks and celebrate International Women’s Day with Netflix.
