I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar: 1970s "Women's Pictures"

Chatting to Anna in the thread to my review for 'Voices', I was lamenting the fact that I find it so difficult to find lesser-known, perhaps forgotten romantic dramas from the 1970s.

There's a lot of love for the 'All the President's Men''s of the world, and of course I totally agree with that, but I also look back on the 70s with some nostalgia when it comes to the schmaltzy romantic, often female-centric dramas released in that decade.

So, please, I'd appreciate any suggestions to help me compile a list of largely female-centric films from the 1970s. Mainly looking for films made for women, and films about women.

My focus is on Hollywood pictures especially, but all are welcome.…
