3 Female Directors Who Gave Us These Amazing Movies

With due pride, I want to say this is the generation of females. Men are making their mark too but the kind of pace the women have picked up in today’s day – it is remarkable! Such commendable work done by them, they know how to explore each and every inch of creativity. And Bollywood is not behind.

The kind of atrocities that are done every day on the womenfolk of India is enough to set them back but they continue moving forward, against all odds, channelising their anger in a productive manner.

Here are some excellent directors who have directed even more excellent films:
