Netflix pays tribute to female characters in International Women's Day video
On International Women’s Day, Netflix is paying tribute to its female characters.
In a video released Wednesday, the women of the Netflix family are spotlighted, including Stranger Things‘ Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), House of Cards‘ Claire Underwood (Robin Wright), The Crown‘s Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy), and the large ensemble of Orange Is the New Black.
During the montage, the female characters disappear from their scenes, causing the viewer to switch to another title. The climax features footage from the penultimate episode of OITNB season 4, with the women of Litchfield banding together to protest how they’re being treated by the guards.
“Our stories don’t work without women,” says the video. “And the world wouldn’t, either.”
Watch the video above.
House of Cards
Ballots, betrayal, and barbecue combine in Netflix’s original drama, which stars Kevin Spacey as cunning congressman Frank Underwood and Robin Wright as his equally ruthless Lady Macbeth. Based on a 1990 BBC serial of the same name.
