Is Kathryn Bigelow a Female Director?

Kathryn Bigelow is the first woman ever to win Best Director at the Directors Guild of America and the third woman ever to be nominated for the position in the entire 61 year history of the Academy Awards. Yet her film, which females barely any female characters, has created an outcry from certain critics that denote it as overwhelmingly masculine and subsequently demoting Bigelow's femininity. Unlike previous female nominees, whose movies featured strong female characters, Bigelow's differences in cinematic style, significance and persona have been called in to question in relation to her female predecessors. Matthew Hammer Knott has an interesting essay on the topic on IndieWire. Tell us what you think....
