Femininity on Film

Femininity on Film

Film representation of femininity is changing but not fast enough. “For most of movie history – from the old Westerns to Thelma & Louise by way of exploitation gore-fests like I Spit on Your Grave- women’s violence could be justified by narrowly defined motives of self-defense or revenge. The broader battle between right and wrong – and also the pleasure of action for its own sake – have typically been male prerogatives, handed down over the decades from gunslingers to superheroes.”
