Over the past year, a lot of great online content has been appearing in the form of web series from Canadians. In particular, a few strong entries feature women in key creative and decision-making roles. In honour of Women’s History Month this March, here’s a list of the top five web series created by Canadian Women within the last few years.

The Autobiography of Jane Eyre

This series is a modernization of Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre created by Vancouverites, Nessa Aref and Alyson Hall. Shot in a vlogging style, The Autobiography of Jane Eyre is a quirky, introspective and clever remake of the classic novel.

Golden Futures

Named after an apartment building in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, Golden Futures was created by local comedians Christine Bortolin and Bita Joudaki. The series follows two completely clueless millennials, using a lot of self-reflective humour to deliver some truly hilarious moments.

Inshayshable

Inshayshable is a look into a week in the life of Saysha Grabinski, the “type of woman you make eye contact with and instantly know it was a mistake”. The series was first released on the website, Funny or Die, but now is featured on their own website and hosted on YouTube.
