Movies Where There Are No Women

WHERE ARE THE WOMEN???? 

Films where there are no female characters / female characters are on screen for less than 15 minutes total / don’t have names and/or have significant dialogue. This is not to say these movies are bad!!! Just an interesting observation.


Important Note: I genuinely do not care if you think a movie “shouldn’t be on this list”. It’s my list and I made it how I wanted to make it. If you’re bothered enough by a movie being here, maybe just take the energy you were going to spend commenting that and instead use it to make your own list that you deem “okay” :)
