It’s never too late to celebrate Women’s History Month. The month-long celebration happens every March, and this year, Max has decided to honor women everywhere with a programming schedule designed to highlight movies, TV shows, and documentaries that place women in front of and behind the camera, as well as subjects and themes that showcase the female experience.

Across its multiple brands and franchises, Max has refreshed its “In Her Voice” collection and broken the considerable library down into such categories as “Strong Leading Ladies,” “Comedy Showcase,” “Iconic Ensembles,” and more. Some highlights include recent TV shows such as True Detective: Night Country starring Jodie Foster and Kali Reis and The Regime with Kate Winslet, as well as past seasons of such popular series as And Just Like That…, Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines, Insecure, Selena + Chef, Hacks, Abbott Elementary, and The Sex Lives of College Girls.

Max has movies too, with plenty of women-centric stories driving such recent hits as Barbie and The Color Purple, as well as modern classics like The Devil Wears Prada, Legally Blonde, and A Star is Born. Documentaries are also available to watch, with Tina (about the iconic singer and actress Tina Turner), Being Mary Tyler Moore, and We Will Rise: Michelle Obama’s Mission to Educate being notable standouts in a stellar lineup of nonfiction hits.

The following is a complete list of titles that Max has curated to celebrate Women’s History Month in 2024. All are worth a watch (or two, or three …):
