This essay draws on established and more recent debates about world cinema and on recent feminist writings about women’s cinema in order to argue that in the 2010s, women’s cinema should be regarded as (a) world cinema. By offering a survey of how nations and regions without a tradition of women’s film-making have begun to join those that do have such a history (albeit often discontinuous and under-researched), it argues that books such as Patricia White’s Women’s Cinema, World Cinema: Projecting Contemporary Feminisms and Sophie Mayer’s Political Animals: The New Feminist Cinema have made the case for a global women’s cinema compelling and irresistible.
