Heroic Women Movies
Endorsed by Sioux Falls Feminists

Sioux Falls Feminists recommend the following movies about heroic women. We find that these movies are interesting and entertaining and celebrate the courage of women in face of adversity. These women win out through "persistence and determination", our slogan, as the films will demonstrate eloquently.

Sioux Falls Feminists has no special favorites in this selection of movies. They are ALL favorites. But if we had to select just one it would be Dead Calm. This is the movie that "made" Nicole Kidman a star. She plays the part of a women who never stops thinking of how to win out over her adversary and she does what is necessary to get back to her lost husband. She shows great courage, persistence and determination, and just never gives up. An inspiration for both women and men in face of what seem to be impossible odds.

Sioux Falls Feminists have watched these movies many times. At least twice for all, and some over ten times. We never tire of watching women win out over brutal men, brutal corporations, and brutal circumstances. It is aways inspiring.

The movies are all available from but you are free to obtain them from many other sources. Amazon offers them on their website along with many alternate sources, often less expensive. You are free to choose whatever source you please. The movie links on the following pages point to the movie location at Amazon.
