Are these the 100 most feminist films of all time?

We certainly think so: Our ranked list of the 100 best feminist films of all time is already making waves. Have a look and leave a comment. Better yet, make a viewing list. Researched, written and assembled by our international film staff (in the spirit of #FollowFriday, check out our writers Abbey Bender, Cath Clarke, Tomris Laffly, Helen O'Hara and Anna Smith), the project is an immense labor of love, one that celebrates movies we find beyond inspiring—they're life-changing. Yes, you'll find Thelma & Louise, Kill Bill and Foxy Brown, but our goal is to introduce you to films you may not know (but will never forget). France's legendary Agnès Varda didn't win an Oscar last Sunday night for Faces Places, but she's on our list three times. And may we introduce you to Chantal Akerman, your new favorite obsession? Not only do we collect iconic onscreen moments, but we explore the vast impact of women off-camera as well: the directors, writers and documentarians. What defines a feminist film? It's an absorbing question that we've savored for weeks, and will continue to do so for as long as we go to the movies.
