Want to go to an awesome documentary film festival without having to shell out the cash for a plane ticket, or even having to leave your bed? Obviously, your answer is a resounding "yes." Well #SheDocs is an online film festival that runs through the entirety of March, and  features documentaries that tell the stories of amazing women and what they’ve accomplished during their lifetimes. The best part? The online festival is totally free, so if you end up bawling your eyes out, nobody has to see your red/puffy eyes. (Maybe I’m just talking about myself with that last bit.)

Check out the trailer for one of the documentaries in the series, Pray the Devil Back to Hell, which focuses on Liberian women and their fight to bring peace back to their country: 

I couldn’t think of a more perfect way to celebrate Women’s History Month than with a deluge of well-made documentaries highlighting inspirational work by women and girls. Docs on Alice Walker, Benazir Bhutto, and Daisy Bates will all be featured, as well as other films that focus on lesser-known everyday heroines who are currently trying to change their own communities and the world at large.
