This book introduces three categories of female directors: internationally important, new and notable Taiwanese female directors. The book expands its focus to the film text, female creative behaviour and their environment by exploring the themes. Furthermore, “Women•Image•Book” not only includes the film lists of Women Make Waves Film Festival but also provides relevant websites and books as the appendix.

In the West, many feminist and independent filmmakers in the 70s were dancers. For example, Sally Potter and Yvonne Rainer were both dancers and choreographer before making films. Male film critics have described the camera as a metaphor of pen, however, if we think about the relationship between foot and camera, then what will the camera be? --- Chang Siao-hong
