These Binge-Worthy Oxygen True Crime Shows Put The Focus On Strong Women
If you're looking for a show to watch, consider one of these true crime options from Oxygen.
If you're a true crime fan, you're aware of the irony: While men are much more likely to commit crime, women are more likely to be interested in true crime media. Podcasts, books, shows, movies, you name it. Yet despite content about murders, cons, and cults amassing a large female fanbase, more often than not the stories only feature women as the victims (obvious exceptions like "Snapped," all about female killers, aside).
It can get numbing, watching yet another woman get murdered by a man, only for another man to solve the case and save the day.
Luckily for you, Oxygen has a multitude of shows about strong women fighting for justice, whether they're journalists hunting for truth, detectives solving complex cases, activists advocating for their loved ones, or the victims themselves, bravely speaking out.
It's easier than ever to dive into Oxygen's slate of shows about seeking justice, with full episodes available streaming on your TV, smartphone or computer, wherever you are. Watch episodes with the Oxygen App, available on iOS and Android by simply entering your cable, digital or satellite TV subscription information — or take advantage of three free credits Oxygen offers for watching without signing in. Most shows are also available on AppleTV, Amazon Fire TV and Roku and through Chromecast. Individual episodes can be purchased on iTunes, Amazon, Vudu and Google Play as well.
Shows that are in-season can be streamed live with your Sling TV, Hulu Live TV or YouTube TV subscription. And you can always watch whole episodes right here at Oxygen.com by entering your cable subscription information.
One of Oxygen's most thrilling series is also its most impactful. Former Texas prosecutor Kelly Siegler and a rotating team of investigators team up with local law enforcement to re-examine cold-case murders that have left authorities baffled and families without closure for years — and they get results. The “Cold Justice” team's work has helped bring about 45 arrests and 18 convictions, and the latest season features five arrests in murder cases going back as far as 31 years. Catch up on the first four seasons, which are packed with shocking revelations and sometimes include incredible footage of police confronting and arresting their suspect after a successful investigation.
Veteran TV legal analyst Nancy Grace handpicks shocking true crime stories and brings her legendary victim-advocate perspective as she takes viewers inside the fight for justice. Since testifying as a witness at the trial of her fiancé's killer in 1979 and working more than 10 years as a prosecutor, Grace has worked to bring victims' stories to life. Each episode of “Injustice” details an investigation leaden with dead ends, unjust sentences, or false accusations. Episode 1 features a case Grace herself has a very personal stake in, as a friend and colleague seeks justice for his murdered wife.
Emmy Award-winning journalist Kate Snow highlights the stories of victims of unimaginable crimes, their families, and ordinary people who never gave up the fight for justice. Meet incredible people like college student Abby Honold, who was brutally raped and turned her trauma into a fight for victims' rights that's gone nationwide; and Lisa Wheeler Bowman, who took to the streets herself to hunt down her son's killer, and later entered politics to help put an end to violence on her streets.
The 2011 death of Rebecca Zahau at the Coronado, California mansion of her boyfriend, billionaire Jonah Shacknai, was bizarre enough to spark multiple theories. Zahau's family has long disagreed with authorities' conclusion that she died by suicide, and the controversy led to a multi-million-dollar wrongful death lawsuit and an official re-investigation by the sheriff's department. The case still eats at many, however, including former prosecutor Loni Coombs, who takes a deeper look at the case along with crime journalist Billy Jensen and forensic criminologist Paul Holes in this Oxygen limited series. The star-powered team of investigators look at the evidence, re-enact Zahau's death, and uncover startling new information in an effort to find justice for the family.
Kim Kardashian West is easily one of the most famous and successful women in the world, and in recent years Kardashian West has used her voice for an important cause: criminal justice reform. In the two-hour special airing April 5 on Oxygen, Kardashian West, who is currently studying to become a lawyer, looks into the cases of Dawn Jackson, Alexis Martin, Momolu Stewart, and David Sheppard, cases where some legal experts believe a miscarriage of justice occurred. Kardashian West gives a face to America's mass incarceration problem in this deeply moving special.
Four brave women, who were once Jehovah's Witnesses, come forward with their allegations of sexual abuse experienced in the organization in this shocking and affecting two-part documentary special.

On October 30, 1975, 15-year old Martha Moxley was found killed on her own front lawn in Greenwich, Connecticut. The case went cold for 23 years before Michael Skakel, her onetime neighbor and a relative of the famous Kennedy clan, was arrested. But while he was sentenced to 20 years to life for the murder in 2002, his conviction would be overturned in 2013 following years of appeal.
Former federal prosecutor and on-air legal analyst Laura Coates re-examines the Moxley murder, taking a look at evidence at the time, testing out new theories and interviewing multiple people close to the case, like former LAPD Homicide Detective Mark Fuhrman, trial defense attorney Mickey Sherman, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and several of Moxley's loved ones, as Coates attempts to find justice for Martha Moxley.
In this Oxygen special, women who were conned by a romantic scammer refuse to let their perpetrator win and come forward to expose Derek Alldred, a master manipulator, who used disguise and emotional trickery to seduce women into relationships with him under a number of different personas. His goal was the same with each, however: drain them of their financial resources and use them to support his own lifestyle before he moves onto the next victim. But Alldred didn't count on the resourcefulness and guts of some of the women he conned. This Oxygen special features intimate interviews with Alldred's victims, who ultimately helped bring him down.
