12 films by women you can stream on Netflix right now

Netflix adds to its wide selection of content each month, and its summer releases boast a significant number of films written or directed by women. From those who are unable to attend screenings of independent films in their cities due to distribution limitations to others who simply prefer streaming to the theater-going experience, exposure to films by women and availability of female-helmed movies is becoming wider than ever.
