this list began because i was writing a piece for my university's feminist magazine on intersectional feminist films but i finished that so now it's turned into a list of movies that feature one or more of the following elements:
-intersectionality
-non-boring woman protagonist
-made by a woman or women
-authentic/complex/nuanced portrayal of women
-explores an issue specific to women and gender
