This movie quiz from Alex Raphael is a lot of fun. Don’t cheat! I knew 8 of them. Looks like I have some movie viewing to do soon 😉 Great to see all of these inspiring women in film. How many did you guess right?

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?

And, rightly so. You don’t deserve to be treated like that. But, when putting import on truthful relationships, most of us could do with looking inwards. You may not realize it, but most of us lie to ourselves at some stage. We do so to protect ourselves, or to stop ourselves having to make major changes. But, even lies with the best intentions can be harmful. If we refuse to put up with such treatment from others, why should we stand the same from ourselves?
