'Ordinary Women' is the name of a five-episode webseries from nonprofit organization Feminist Frequency that focuses on sharing educational content with a feminist perspective. As the name of the series suggests, Ordinary Women shines a spotlight on remarkable women from around the world who dared to push boundaries in their own times in history.

Some of the women from different cultures who are discussed include civil rights crusader Ida B. Wells, Japanese writer Murasaki Shikibu and "The Pirate" Ching Shih.

Best of all, each of the episodes of the YouTube show is only about three to six minutes in length, meaning that the entire first series can be consumed in under half an hour. Now more than ever, consumers are looking for educational content that comes in the form of bite-sized entertainment.
