The Female Gaze

ebook

"An unabashed love letter to our cinema sisters . . . a treasure of delights that honors more than a hundred years of female filmmaking. Brava!" —Rachel Feldman, film/TV director, screenwriter and activist
A #1 Bestseller in Movies & Video Guides & Reviews
With the success of Patty Jenkins's Wonder Woman and the rise of the MeToo movement, women creators in film are more important than ever.
Coined in the 1970s, the term "male gaze," pertains to what happens to viewers when the majority of art and entertainment has been made by the one gender perspective. So, what about the opposite?
The Female Gaze comprises a list detailing the essential movies from the past and present made by women. It also features multiple mini-essays written by a variety of diverse female film critics, about a woman or a movie made by women that they love. In its pages, you'll discover:

  • The accomplishments of numerous women in film such as Dorothy Arzner, Ida Lupino, Kathryn Bigelow, Lady Bird's Greta Gerwig and more
  • The lives of these women and the struggles they faced carving a place for themselves in the film industry
  • How these women's unique voices shaped the films they made and influenced all the film world

  • "Once again Alicia Malone champions women filmmakers, opening the floodgates to a great new wave of female voices and creative vision. A wonderful guide to some of the best films made by women, both celebrating women directors and fueling the red-hot discussion about why we don't have more." —Maria Giese, filmmaker and activist
