Absolutely Wonderful Womens History
18 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

I think that women may respond to this amazing drama, more than men...more's the pity. It addresses the kind of oppression women, children and the poor have faced throughout time. It takes a moment of one such time and speaks volumes about many others like it. An intimate snapshot into something deeply relatable to many. Even with such a dark topic this story is uplifting, because it is true to human nature. The acting is superb, the writing intelligent and the cinematography gorgeous. It was altogether deeply satisfying.

Personally I find it intriguing that most women's history, if not contained within the political arena is considered historical fiction. I suppose this series is a work of fiction but it is based on the true experiences of the voiceless, nameless, brave people who suffered through such hard times. More a fictionalized truth, truer than what may lay in the pages of history books. The people who write history are the victors, the politicians, the wealthy. Mostly if not always educated men. This bias is so deep that few lasting memoirs exist about the lives of common people. And yet most of us are still common, and more then half are women.

I have sat through countless media and fiction that centers around the male experience. I find it elating that many new series are giving equal time to the plot development of the lives of women, and women not as victims of violence but of circumstance.

I think this story rocks. It is definitely a 10 star series.
