Religion and women's bodies: a collaborative list

Documenting the ways that religious figureheads claim authority over the workings of woman's bodies. It doesn't have to be Christianity.

On the other hand, if there have been 318 movies about exorcisms, or even 38 about Christian witchfinders,we don't need every last one -- let's restrict it to the ones that have something meaningful to say about the challenges to female autonomy.

I know I'm overlooking a lot -- help me out here. Early sixties Italian horror?

Pending consideration:
The Scarlet Letter (1926)
Night Of The Hunter (1955)
God Exists, Her Name Is Petrunya
