Netflix Launches ‘Because She Watched’, a Collection of Shows Curated by Female Creators

International Women’s Day is right around the corner and Netflix has your plans all lined up: A binge-a-thon of movies, TV, and documentaries celebrating women of all kinds. 

Curated by female creators, Because She Watched is Netflix’s latest, girl-powered collection.
