15 Best Movies Directed by Women in 2017

In a year that seems to have been dominated by men being terrible in Hollywood, there is one bright side: Women are directing some seriously incredible movies, and they’re raking in money doing it. 2017 saw several top movies that were directed by women. Lady Bird famously maintained a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and Wonder Woman was one of the top-grossing movies of the year.

But if you want to continue to see movies where women had a pivotal role in their production, there’s one big thing you can do: Go out and see movies directed by women, particularly on their premiere weekend.

In the meantime, if you missed one of these incredible films directed by women, here’s a list to start your queue.
