The emotional and behavioral bounds set for women are suffocating. We can't crave sex, get mad,
or be too ambitious. Screw that — if we played by those rules, we'd never achieve anything. That's why, for the
entirety of Women's History Month, we'll be sharing stories from prominent women reclaiming the feelings we've been told we're not "allowed" to experience or express — and dispelling the shame around them. Here's to celebrating the urges and wants that make humans tick, foster innovation, and propel growth. Because owning our urges and refusing to apologize for them? That takes nerve.
We teamed up with Disney+ to elevate stories of trailblazing women.
From the news cycle to the neighborhood to the big screen, women everywhere are renouncing the way they've been defined by society and taking control of their narrative. This Women's History Month, celebrate women daring to exist beyond boundaries with the Female Leads Collection streaming on Disney+.
