LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ClixCelebatesWomensHistoryMonth–Clix Inc., the free every-screen “Guidance Guru” for leading streaming movies and series unveils its second annual list of extraordinary women actors and storytellers – a tribute to International Women’s Day on March 8 and Women’s History Month as we honor Hollywood’s Fab50, from Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, Cate Blanchett, Zendaya, Kerry Condon, Jennifer Coolidge, Michelle Williams, Millie Bobby Brown, Kate Hudson, Mindy Kaling, Shonda Rhimes, Anna De Armas, Aubrey Plaza and more in 2023’s rich tapestry of women talent.
“Entertainment is a cultural barometer of our tastes, our attractions, and the changing role of ethnicity, race, and gender in our lives,” said Los Angeles based psychologist, Dr. Karen Dean Fritts, PhD., LMFT. “What is particularly inspiring about this year’s list of actresses and storytellers is the sheer range of genres and roles that these women have tackled.”
From superheroes to an exceptionally interesting filmmaker’s mom and a tragic-but-brilliant movie star to a stoically weird/wicked Addams, an extraordinary entrepreneur-turned-convict, and a loveably neurotic vacationing shooter… women were at the forefront of Hollywood’s best, from the innovative cinema to must-binge streaming stories – an international footprint:
Poker Face, Wakanda Forever, Women King, White Lotus, Banshees of Inisherin, Everything, Everywhere, All At Once, Blonde, The Fabelmans, The Dropout, Ozark, Glass Onion, Bridgerton, Wednesday, Tar, Till, Avatar, Euphoria, Abbott Elementary, The Sex Lives of College Girls, Stranger Things, The Whale, Yellowstone, Poker Face, and more of our best productions now streaming across screens and platforms worldwide.
“It’s truly this global list of extraordinary women-led artistic work that provides a sense of hope in what’s to come,” said Dr. Fritts. “As we celebrate women’s achievements this
month, lets also acknowledge the barriers which women have transcended as they continue to pave the road before them – and invent bridges yet to be imagined.”
Clix is the leading discovery guide to the ocean of video now streaming across all major platforms including, Netflix, Prime Video, HBO Max, Paramount+, Peacock, AMC+ and more to come as entertainment consumers increasingly become “cord-cutters” and opt to stream rather than watch traditional TV and cable channels.
The Clix methodology in choosing its Fab50 Women Stars utilized a combination of AI/Machine Learning and actual human entertainment experts.
