Directed by Women

using Vanessa's list as a guideline; if there are movies on here that don't look like they belong, it's probably because they were co-directed by women, but feel free to call out anything that looks out of place

as with all long lists, the ranking at the top is tighter than in the middle or at the bottom (although it is true that I do not like 27 Dresses)
