 Feminist Popcorn   is a celebration and growing archive of the greatest films about women. 


Every two weeks, podcast hosts and movie-loving best friends, 

Samantha Rehr and Elisabeth Frankel, lead a conversation

analyzing three films that share a specific narrative theme.

At the end of each episode, the three films covered in the next episode are announced, along with links to their streaming destinations, so that listeners can be a part of the conversation. Listeners are also invited to send in

responses, which may be shared during episodes. 


Movies covered must,

at the very least, follow these 

two basic criteria :


They must be told from a woman character’s point of view, rather than follow a woman through the lens of a man’s experience of her.


They must feature a woman protagonist, as well as at least one other woman in a leading or supporting role.
