So I wrote a review of Widows. I’m a woman. I was reading a review by another woman, Carmen Phillips, at Autostraddle. I suddenly had a burning desire to see just how many Widows reviews by women I could find.
I went to Google. In the first two pages of results, I found many, many reviews by men. Here are the reviews I found by women.
That was it. My Widows review and the one from Autostraddle didn’t make the first two pages. If I’d kept going on Google for more pages, I’d probably have found more women. But who goes past the first two pages of results?
Then I went to the IMDB page of External Reviews for the film. I found about 20 women in a list of over 150 reviews in English and several other languages.
But it shouldn’t be so hard to find a woman’s opinion about a film about women!
