March is a time to celebrate women. Over the last decade, we’ve seen women prevail across many different areas of life, while advocating for women’s rights and equality. From business to entertainment and the arts, women have always experienced a power imbalance when compared to their counterparts. Today, we’re seeing more women establish their presence in predominantly male industries, including TV and film. That said, our friends at Roku have decided to put the spotlight on some movies that have been directed by women, available to watch on Roku devices, including the TCL 5-series 4K UltraHD Dolby Vision HDR QLED Roku Smart TV.
