Must-See Feminism Movie Collection

There are feminism movies. The main characters of the film who are not Cinderella or pampered ladies. They can not be reconciled to be a good wife and mother for traditional sense and they also unwilling to be a doll under the shadow of male chauvinism. Those different women who are never willing to be a supporting role of fate. All of them have their own character and have the courage to against the world. Of course, their fate was either sad or happy and the film  good and bad. But it is always the weak, powerful figure and a strong, independent soul that you will never erase from your heart. Again, like the Faust said "permanent female, guided us to ascend''.
