A funny thing happened to me on the way to making my own list of 25 Films Written By Women to counter the “52 Films by Women” put out by the WIF (Women In Film).
Their list only included films directed by women and didn’t even bother listing the names of the writers (some of whom were also women).
So I Googled ’20 Films Written by Women’ to see what someone else may have collected and found this list of “128 Best Movies Written by Women of All Time”.
Can you find the flaw in the way they list the movies?
I can and it’s driving me CRAZY…
…and then I found that even though they list the writers in the opening paragraphs, they omit the screenwriter’s name from the movie’s details.
