Films for women, by women: a Gojek guide

No two women are the same. This year, we’d like to use this space to share the stories of women all around the world. From journos in India equipped only with phones, to retirees in America who are houseless and lost – here are some of the best movies for women, by women.


Some Women – dir. Quen Wong

Filmmaker Quen Wong talks about her life as a transgender woman in Singapore, while interviewing fellow trans women of other generations.

Writing with Fire – dir. Sushmit Ghosh, Rintu Thomas

This award-winning documentary follows the people behind Khabar Lahariya – the only news agency in India run by Dalit (“lower caste”) women, who report primarily armed only with smartphones.


Nomadland – Chloé Zhao

A vast and quiet film, Nomadland follows the story of Fern, whose former town disappears just before her husband passes away. As she hops from job to job, her house is now a van travelling through an incredibly lonely America.


Lady Bird – Greta Gerwig

Lady Bird is a wistful, tender coming-of-age story about a teenage girl who longs to get away – from her mother, her hometown, and everything else a teenage girl wishes to get away from.


Fiksi – Mouly Surya

We support women’s rights… and sometimes women’s wrongs. Fiksi (i.e. Fiction) follows a woman who stalks a hunky struggling writer, before moving into his apartment to concoct stories for him. Except these stories always, always come true.
