What Makes a Film Feminist?

What Really Makes a Film Feminist?–The Atlantic


I ran across this article today and thought that it was raising interesting questions about what makes something “feminist.” As we were thinking about women’s voice and their representation not only in political and economic terms but also in cultural terms, I wondered what it really means for something to be of “women’s voice” or “feminist.”

This article  explains a new rating system that evaluates a film’s feminist-ness and exposes the potential problems with labeling a film “feminist” that might be useful for us when thinking about La Nouba des Femmes du Mont Chenoua and Woolf.
