Strong women leads for fans of Good Girls
The dark crime comedy about three mothers who plan an ill-fated heist on a grocery store to get their families through their financial woes was renewed for a fourth season earlier this year, and the first three seasons are available to stream on Netflix in South Africa.
While you wait for the fourth season to land, stream these shows and movies with fierce female leads. They’re all deliciously dark and their lead characters smash the stereotype of what women are supposed to be.

In the first season of this acclaimed British period drama, we meet rival London brothel owners Margaret Wells (Samantha Morton) and Lydia Quigley (Lesley Manville), who are competing for upperclass customers in Soho of the 18th Century. But by Season 3, both of these madams are out of the way, and it’s up to Margaret Wells’s daughters Charlotte (Jessica Brown Findlay) and Lucy (Eloise Smyth) to take up the mantle, with the help of Lady Fitzwilliam (Liv Tyler). This raunchy comedy-drama is propelled by the fierce performances of the cast and the gorgeous costumes.
