Week Of Women: September 8-14, 2017

by Erika W. Smith



Our weekly roundup of women-centered pop culture is back! Scroll down to read about the 10 movies, albums, TV shows, and books created by or starring women that we’re most excited about for the upcoming week. As a reminder, we haven’t seen, read, or listened to all of these ourselves, so if they’re bad, don’t blame us! But if we have reviewed them, we’ll include a link to the review, or refer to it if it’s in print. This week’s a big one, featuring a new movie starring Reese Witherspoon, the return of several of our fave TV series, and Hillary Clinton’s election memoir. Enjoy!
