14 Movies by Women We Can't Wait to See in 2016

Jan 21, 2016

Women are routinely shut out of opportunities to write and direct films, and rarely get the chance to work on big-budget projects. Last year, women made up just 9% of directors and 11% of writers for the top-grossing 250 films, according to a recent study. The problem has grown so bad that the federal government is currently investigating sexism in Hollywood.

Though female filmmakers will again be outnumbered by their male counterparts in 2016, some progress is being made. There are many female-directed or -written films to look forward to this year, including Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Ghostbusters and Kung Fu Panda 3.
