We choose a wide range of entertaining films that tell women’s stories and do not stereotype or objectify women. We aim to represent the diversity of human experience and avoid films that further prejudice of any kind. Films are open to interpretation, so we cannot guarantee that everyone will find our film choices unproblematic or feminist from every angle. We always welcome constructive feedback.

Sexism in the film industry

The film industry grossly under-represents women by creating too many movies that focus on men and side-line women from the plot. When female characters are present, too often they are written as limiting stereotypes. This sexist imbalance stifles women’s stories and reinforces damaging beliefs about the lesser value of women.

We’ve done the research about gender inequality in film so you don’t have to.
