13 kick-ass films with strong female leads you need to watch this year

This season has seen the film industry turned on its head. The floodgates opened last October when the New York Times published a story detailing the accusations against Harvey Weinstein and his alleged decades of sexual harassment, a tapestry of scandals that continues to unravel. Countless accusations, campaigns and protests later, we’re finally seeing years worth of necessary change begin to unfold in Hollywood — and it has kickstarted new conversations around gender equality, not just in film, but across other industries too. Needless to say, it’s been a tumultuous, emotional and humbling year in the City of Angels (and apparent devils). So, as we look ahead to the new cinematic season, it’s exciting to see a newfound emphasis on films with strong female leads across a range of contemporary issues, from gun violence, to racial politics and mental health. Talented female writers, directors and actors are claiming the spotlight in a post-Weinstein world, and for all the right reasons.
