52 Films By Women 2016

I had noticed many other Letterboxd members taking up this challenge earlier in the year. I wasn't sure I could fit it, but since I've already got a fair start, I decided to create a list to see how far I can get. The names of the directors can be seen in the Notes, along with ratings and links to reviews. Many of these titles are from Cinema Fanatic: A Year With Women: 103 Essential Films By Female Filmmakers.
