Netflix and UN Women have teamed up to launch Because She Watched, a collection of series, documentaries and films curated by female creators working behind the scenes and in front of the camera. The curators include Sophia Loren, Janet Mock, Salma Hayek, Yalitza Aparicio, Millie Bobby Brown, Mindy Kaling, Laurie Nunn, Lana Condor, Petra Costa and Ava DuVernay. The collection, which will be available to stream all year, launched ahead of International Women's Day on Sunday. "This collaboration is about taking on the challenge of telling women’s stories and showing women in all their diversity. It’s about making visible the invisible, and proving that only by fully representing and including women on screen, behind the camera and in our narratives overall, society will truly flourish," said Anita Bhatia, UN Women deputy executive director. The collection can be accessed at Netflix.com/BecauseSheWatched or by searching "Because She Watched" on the streamer. Every title in the collection is labeled so that members can easily see which curator picked each title. In addition, members can choose from a selection of "Because She Watched" profile icons to celebrate their favorite female characters who are featured in the collection.
