This is firstly a fun, thought-provoking show for those who love watching Twilight Zone-esque storytelling. But Roar's true power is in its depiction of how people treat women daily. Women face much more stress than they should, and they often go unrewarded and unrecognized; at worst, women can be derided and disregarded. Roar asks viewers to take a second to actually hear women and the struggles they face.

Each story brings a different point in women's lives to the forefront. The use of supernatural elements changes the prism from which hard issues are seen, making it easier for audiences to empathize with the characters and, in turn, the women in their real lives. The series could be a watershed moment for discussing women's issues on television -- hopefully it'll inspire other creators to tell their stories about the complexities of womanhood.

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
