Three of a Kind is a series that lists books, shows, movies, podcasts and even music that pair well together. Each post highlights a particular theme and lists fictional worlds (and music) that revolve around the theme. If you know me, you’ll know that I am in awe of the movie Hidden Figures. This post is to celebrate women just like those.
READ: Warbreaker by BRandon Sanderson
two sisters + color-based fantasy + a sword as a character
Highlights: the character, Lightsong and his sass
While there were main characters besides the sisters, these sisters were the main catalysts to the plot and the real heroes at the end of the book. This epic fantasy knocks every other out of the park. I mean, did I already mention that a sword is a character?
WATCH: Hidden Figures
true story of women at NASA + first woman engineer+ woman who put man in space
Highlights: Fierce trailblazing women
Not only does it show how NASA got its first man into space, but it shows the women behind it, and the adversity they faced to be where they were. I love how the movie talks about the race issue in America and the fact that it’s a true story just adds to its appeal.
Watch: Jessica Jones
heroine with superpower strength + persevered despite PTSD + fierce AF
Highlights: Her fighting skills!
Well produced tv show with the bold Jessica Jones, I haven’t seen a show that portrays internalized thoughts so well. It also addresses abuse and PTSD so bonus points for not trying to glaze over the tough stuff.
Bonus: Scars to your beautiful
I bet there’s a lot more fiction that portray powerful women but my library of read books in this category is tiny. So, what would you recommend?
