We all watch a lot on our TVs and over the last year we’ve all watched A LOT on our TVs, for obvious reasons. Whether you found new favorites like Bridgerton or Tiger King or went back to tried and true gems, odds are, you’ve spent a solid chunk of time staring off into the void for connection, for comfort, and for laughs. But what did you tune in to for inspiration? If you’re coming up short, we think these music documentaries about strong women are the perfect way to go — here’s why.
While this genre has traditionally been dominated by male artists (save for Madonna’s 1991 Truth or Dare and the posthumously released AMY for Amy Winehouse in 2015), since 2019 we’ve seen the it’s-about-darn-time expansion of the category to include heavyweights of the female gender and this writer can assure you they are all must-sees. From Pink to Tina Turner to The Go Go’s to Billie Eilish to Dolly Parton and more, these trailblazers are not only sharing their stories but telling their stories, and the results are powerful and fascinating.
