Dolly Parton. Lily Tamlin. Jane Fonda. These badass women overthrow their autocratic, sexist boss and it is just *chef’s kiss* that good.
5. Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai de Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles

Diane Lane as your typical 80s angsty teenager living in nowhere land until she gets her punk band, The Stains, a tour gig. They quickly become media magnets and the rest is history!
House of Mod was created and curated to embody the girl boss within. The movie list is just a small glimpse at some of the legends that paved the way for women.
