Why haven’t I told you about Justified before?

Well, I’m telling you now.

I admit I’m a bit of a latecomer to this show, but after a friend recommended “Justified,” I was hooked from the first episode. I couldn’t stop watching this show. I was compelled to start the next episode right after each ended, and was staying up until two or three in the morning a few nights before I realized it. It was like eating potato chips; well written Kentucky-style potato chips. Don’t look for those, they don’t exist.

“Justified” is based on novelist Elmore Leonard’s ‘Fire in the Hole,’ and stars Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood, Hitman) as Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens who, after a shooting incident in Miami, is transferred to his home state of Kentucky. Thrown back to Harlan County and a world he’d been happy to leave behind, Givens soon has to deal with his estranged father, Arlo (Raymond J. Barry), his ex-wife Winona (Natalie Zea), and an old acquaintance-turned-bank-robber, Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins). The Deputy Marshal has to contend with old feuds, corruption, Harlan’s organized crime, as well as the Detroit Mafia who are looking for payback for Miami.

This week we are celebrating exceptional female role models in movies. There are so many to choose from, but we’ve narrowed it down to some of our favorites. These characters push the limits of their situation, demanding that their lives mean something and that they are allowed to be who they want. Strong and determined, these women and girls are the types of characters that can inspire women to reach for the stars.

Minny – Outspoken and strong, Minny stands her ground when faced with a cruel employer, using her revenge to keep the women interviewed safe from retribution.

Mary and Martha (2013)

Mary – An American interior designer turns the loss of her son from malaria into a political campaign to fight the spread of the disease.
