Valentine’s Day picks for women
This Valentine’s Day treat yourself to a romance or romantic comedy that has much to offer female viewers. Instead of settling for regressive narratives packaged as great love stories, indulge in a truly enjoyable movie, preferably with a huge bowl of popcorn and a box of chocolates.
The romance/romantic comedy and drama genres have better offerings. The following movie picks include a few (and sometimes all) of the following: a female gaze, several significant female characters, affection and congeniality between females (not just antagonism), exchanges between women about things besides men—not to mention an absence of violence against women and girls (VAWG) and hypersexualization of the female characters. These picks do not all contain every one of these inclusions (and exclusions) but they are all enjoyable and have much to offer female viewers.
