This Supercut of Women Kicking Ass Puts Hollywood’s Lack of Female Action Leads to Shame


Hollywood’s gender inequality issues always take an even more frustrating turn when the focus moves to the dire lack of female leads in action movies. While more actresses are speaking up, it’s unlikely studio heads will start truly investing in badass female roles anytime soon—unless of course your lady appears overtly sexualized, to the delight of nerds everywhere.

Till then, we have this: a rousing supercut produced by awesome woman Clara Darko filled with just the ladies—Helen Mirren! Sigourney Weaver! Uma Thurman!—kicking ass way better than the boys.
