My month of women directors

I realised recently that I've never been particularly good at making sure I am watching a decent number of films from women directors. I am trying to generally change my viewing habits to rectify this, but am beginning with 31 days in which I watch well regarded films directed by women. I have a list of some films I want to watch in this period, whether they have been chosen through repute or a specific recommendation from a friend. I am generally trying to keep it to directors I am yet to see any films from, but am not strictly tied to this.
