Inspirational books and movies are much needed. Here are the top ten inspirational women’s stories.
It’s not necessarily what we read about in publications and newspapers that makes for the finest inspirational women’s novels. To overcome any obstacle, you need more inner power and tenacity.

When considering inspirational movies, there is something to suit everyone’s interests, whether you’re looking for a feel-good story, a traditional tearjerker, or an empowering tale that can impart some valuable lessons. Here are the top 10 inspiring books and movies for women.
1. The Handmaid’s Tale (book)
This dystopian novel is set in a future in which civilization has largely collapsed in the United States and a kind of religious cult has taken control. In this future society, women have been deprived of almost all fundamental freedoms. Since the handmaid’s tale is the handmaid’s tale, this book is one of the most compelling, heartbreaking, and profound books I have ever read. I heartily recommend it to everyone.
2. Becoming (book)
Becoming by Michelle Obama is, of course, her autobiography and tells the tale of her entire life. Truly, this woman is truly inspirational. This book emphasizes the value of education in everyone’s life, particularly in the lives of women. The most important lesson you can take away from that section of her book is that you don’t have to give up one element of your life in order to achieve the other; you can be an excellent mother and an amazing leader at the same time.
3. A Thousand Splendid Suns (focus)
The next book on my list is Thousand Splendid Suns by Khalid Hosseini, which is about two amazing ladies and is situated in Afghanistan. This book emphasises the significance of fighting against injustices, regardless of how minor they may seem in comparison to the horrific injustices that these two women experience. Even a minor injustice that you experience because of your gender, race, or another factor beyond your control deserves your attention.
4. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo: A Novel (Book)
It mainly tells the tale of Evelyn Hugo, a fictitious actress who lived in the 1950s. If I’m not mistaken, it’s essentially the story of her life, including how she managed to have seven husbands, the story of love, the sacrifices made by this one woman in order to achieve recognition, and in some ways, the cost she had to incur in order to achieve that fame.
5. Pride and Prejudice (Book)
This book is a classic that everyone has heard of and knows about. It tells the tale of the Bennett sisters, who are actually five sisters in the Bennett family, and how their mother is obsessed with finding each of her daughters a wealthy husband who will be able to rescue them from their miserable upbringing.
6. Little Women (movie)
The cinematic adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic book Little Women, directed by Greta Gerwig and starring Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, and Timotée Chalamet, has been praised for its originality and creativity. The story follows the four March sisters, Meg, Beth, Amy, and Jo, as they pursue their various goals against the backdrop of the Civil War. We learn from the women to stand up for what we believe in and to never accept defeat.
7. Coco before Chanel (movie)
This one is for you, fashion enthusiasts. The movie centers on Coco Chanel, who works as a seamstress and cabaret performer before she falls in love with and works as a fashion consultant for the attractive English businessman Arthur Capel. Chanel is one of the most famous and influential women in fashion history. The film not only showcases Chanel’s great aura and personality, but it is also a classy, heartfelt romance.
8. Iron Lady (movie)
One of Hollywood’s top performers, Meryl Streep is known for playing Margaret Thatcher in the iconic film Iron Lady. The autobiographical drama movie follows Thatcher from her earliest years as she battles to overcome class and gender hurdles to become the first female prime minister of England.
9. Hidden Figures (movie)
Katherine, Mary, and Dorothy, three Black women who worked at NASA in the 1960s, are depicted in the film as they were in real life. These gifted “human computers” work in the white male-dominated field despite the discrimination and gender inequity they experience. In the end, the group was crucial to the historic ascent of astronaut John Glenn into orbit.
10. Mulan (movie)
Mulan, who poses as a male warrior in order to save her father, is seen in the thrilling battle scenes of the film. Even if the storyline is compelling, the film received criticism for being shot in the region of Xinjiang, where some Uighur Muslims have been interned and for the lead actress Liu Yifei’s contentious remarks in favor of the police during the protests in Hong Kong.
