It was a fun experience. It got me to watch several films that I might have missed if I hadn’t been a part of this challenge.

I’m very glad I watched each and every one of these films.

This list is by no means exhaustive. There are a lot more great films directed by woman out there.

And I plan to watch as many of them as I can find.

What do you think?
