Film Quiz: Inspirational Women

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?

  1. Right off the bat, I knew 5 of them – all my favourite movies:

    Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley in the Alien franchise
    Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor in the Terminator franchise
    Julia Roberts in the title roles Erin Brockovich
    Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side
    Octavia Spencer in Hidden Figures

  2. I think I technically got 6, but if you count the ones I recognised as a film but couldn’t remember the names of the women or the film then it’s 11 (awful memory!) This was fun, and I think films are a great way to identify with and feel empowered by inspirational women of years past and today. x

  3. Oh my lord, what a great great post. It had me at Scarlett O’Hara… But just the other day I was watching the dreadful last Terminator film and bemoaning how very badly Sarah Conner was played and scripted, all modern words for bite me basically on a heroine from the 80s. And I was saying what a fab creation she was and how good Linda Hamilton was in Judgement Day. Wonderful to see this post.

    • Hi Shey! So great you had fun with the quiz too 🙂 Oh I didn’t see the last Terminator film so I didn’t know how bad her role in it was as the series progressed. Well that’s disappointing!

      • Well of course Linda Hamilton dropped out after the first two. But you might say this attempt to write and play her was toe-bunching, is something of an understatement. There are some things you leave alone. The original Terminator is one of them. She was such a great creation, you know the waitress who couldn’t balance her cheque book with the fluffy hair to the mother of the future, hard as nails. And like that I was actually thinking about female roles that have stood out AND then here’s this brilliant post with so many of these parts right there. x

  4. I ended up with about 8 too so I’ll have to make sure to watch some of those movies now. Thanks for the quiz and for spreading the word on inspirational women!
