With the continuous progress of the social economy, the social status of women has also undergone significant changes. With the further promotion of the women's rights movement, the subject matter and content of feminist films show a more diversified trend, and feminist films have experienced a course from the disappearance of the subject to the awakening of self-consciousness. In recent years, more and more films have tried to deeply explore the growth process of women, show the life experience of individual women in the form of films, highlight the struggle of women in society and compete for the right to speak. Digging deeply into the development process of feminist films can further analyze the characteristics and changes of female films in different periods and cultural backgrounds, which is conducive to a more comprehensive understanding of the impact of feminist films on audience cognition, social concepts and cultural identity. Through this study, we can better understand the evolution of women in film art, as well as the significance and enlightenment of feminist films to contemporary society.
