Having a tough time deciding on how to spend this Women’s Day? Worry not because we’ve got you covered – as always! Check out five things we think are worth killing time on this Women’s Day:
Netflix & Chill
Nothing beats chilling and snuggling up on the couch and watching your favourite series or movies. And there are plenty of shows we can recommend for Women’s Day on the streaming giant:
Warm, loyal PR executive Kate and her long-time friend, no-nonsense psychiatrist Anne, attend a judgmental mommies’ group, where they meet timid IT tech Jenny and blindly optimistic real estate agent Frankie. The four quickly form an unlikely friendship, sharing struggles of urban motherhood filled with the chaos of toddlers, tantrums, careers, and identity crises, all while trying to achieve a sense of self.
WHEN sisters Beth and Annie (played Christitina Hendricks and Mae Whitman) and their bestie Ruby Hill (played by Retta) are fed up with the unfair rules of life, they get together to rob the local store, hoping to ease their financial burdens. Beth’s what many would consider the perfect wife and mom but her unfaithful husband has sent their family into financial ruin; Ruby is happily married to a policeman but can’t afford the medical bills to save her daughter’s life; and Annie, a single mom, is caught in a nasty custody battle with her ex. With their desperate need for money, crime seems to be their only recourse… but naturally, they end up getting pulled in deeper than they’d planned.
Feeling forgotten on Mother’s Day, three best friends drive from the suburbs to New York City to reconnect with their adult sons.
Read A Good Book
There’re a few good books out there, depending on your preferred genre. We recommend Bare: Blessers Game and Bare: Cradle Of The Hockey Club by Jackie Phamotse. In these books, the author recalls, from first-hand experience, how young women get lured into sex cults, human trafficking, and unusual rituals and only realise it when it’s too late.
A Girls Night Out
Shekhinah invites you to celebrate the success of her album Rose Gold by attending the RoseFest taking place this women’s day in Johannesburg at Nasrec Expo Centre at the Amphi Theatre. Tickets are available on Webtickets.
The popular beauty pageant Is taking place tomorrow at the Sun Arena in Pretoria’s Time Square, Bonang Matheba, will once again return as host.
Go out with your girls on a movie night and check out some blockbusters. We’d recommend the following.
Her Only Choice
A woman is faced with a choice to fight for her life or sacrifice it for another. After years of infertility, a newly-expectant mother is diagnosed with a life-altering disease.
Josephine Chesterfield is a glamorous, seductive British woman who has a penchant for defrauding gullible men out of their money. Into her well-ordered, meticulous world comes Penny Rust, a cunning and fun-loving Australian woman who lives to swindle unsuspecting marks. Despite their different methods, the two grifters soon join forces for the ultimate score – a young and naive tech billionaire in the South of France.
Her Only Choice and The Hustle are currently showing in cinemas nationwide
