The Ordinary Women series consists of five episodes, each about lesser known women across the globe that had interesting and inspiration stories.

The videos are narrated by Anita Sarkeesian who founded the organisation that creates educational videos with a feminist perspective. They feature incredible artwork are relevant to the characters being discussed and are fascinating to watch.

Woman such as Ada Lovelace, Emma Goldman and Ida B. Wells feature in the series.
