The ten-part series is inspired by the New York Times bestselling memoir by Stephanie Land.
For those who haven't seen it yet, the series is about 25-year-old Alex (Margaret Qualley) - a mother who is burnt out and worn down at the hands of her emotionally abusive, alcoholic boyfriend Sean (Nick Robinson).
Netflix writes in its synopsis that Maid centres around 'one young mother's incredible story of survival and resilience as she navigates the world of poverty, abuse and redefining her worth against all odds'.
However, one fan took to Facebook to showcase why she thought the series was so important.
The fan wrote: "Maid on Netflix is possibly one of the most important series in history.
"Yep. I said it.
"Why is talking about domestic violence so important? It's important because even though women are the victims, domestic violence carries this terrible stigma even in 2021.
"It's important because abusers are often publicly great guys.
"The victim's family loves them and they will often defend the abuser, leaving the victim without a support system.
"The victim becomes the bad guy who wants to break up the family.
"This series is important because abusers themselves and many other people do not understand how terrorising verbal and mental abuse is - the constant promise of change, the apologies."
On Twitter, several other fans echoed similar thoughts.
One wrote: "#MAIDNetflix is one of the most powerful shows I've seen in a really long time."
While another added: "My favourite thing about Maid on Netflix is Alex wasn't even physically abused. It was emotional abuse.
"But it's proof that physical abuse isn't the only abuse in relationships & emotional abuse is just as serious & leaving is always okay."
