Working Hard or Hardly Working

When I am swamped with work, sometimes I need a little pick-me-up in the shape and form of a movie. There are many women — both real and fictional — to look up to, but when I compile my quick list of movies with standout stars, this is what I come up with. These are light-hearted movies (and TV show), and 4 of the 5 women are writers/producers/journalists, something I feel I can relate to. The 5th woman (Mandy Moore in Because I Said So) is a food caterer. No matter what their profession, these women gain strength from their mistakes, learn to adapt, and embrace who they are and what they want to become.
