This year is a big year for female-led movies as they showcase women in every genre imaginable. From action thrillers to sci-fi adventures to comedies and dramas that all have women in lead roles - there's something on here for everyone. That's why we've listed all the good female-led films and ranked them using votes from movie fans like you. After the success of female superhero movies in both the MCU and DCEU, many studios are doubling down on their commitment to creating more roles for women and telling stories from their perspective. So keep an eye out for films like Barbie, The Little Mermaid, and Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. While diverse in subject matter and tone, all of these movies do an excellent job of highlighting their leading ladies.
Now it's time to vote up your favorite movies you've seen in theaters or on streaming platforms. Don't hesitate to vote down the films that you think others should skip despite being fans of female-led films. Be sure to check back as new and upcoming female-driven movies are added to the list once they are released. Also, look for the Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, Paramount+, Apple TV+, and Disney+ buttons below each film to stream them as soon as they're available.

Ashley Benson takes the lead in this film and is joined by a cast of quirky characters played by Pamela Anderson, Luis Guzmán, Paris Hilton, G-Eazy, and Winnie Harlow.
