Celebrate International Women’s Day With “THE POWER OF SHE” Collection on Netflix

The carefully curated collections feature some of Nigeria’s leading ladies with a selection of titles broken out into individual collections MoviesWrittenbyWomen, WomenInSports, WomenMakingHistory StrongWomen and Kick-ass Women. The goal behind the collection is to showcase the diversity and range that women excel at in film, both on and off screen, and to inspire other women to reimagine their roles in society.

To girls who look up to her, Ini Dima Okojie shared nuggets of wisdom for tomorrow saying; “Hold onto that thing that makes you unique, because you are who you are for a reason. Also, better yourself, because it starts with you. Your entire journey doesn’t have to be figured out, as long as you better yourself enough to at least take that one step towards your goal”.

Last year, Netflix announced a $5 million investment to honor women who have paved the way for the next generation, whilst also organizing training programs to develop up-and-coming talent, through its Strategic partnerships with Realness Institute For episodic labs which is currently underway.
