Maisie Williams & Natalie Dormer during the ‘Women Who Kick Ass’ Panel (x)
I think Arya would’ve eventually liked Margaery as a sister in law. Imagine Margaery being the only one to notice Arya’s crush on Gendry and trying to talk to her about it and Arya being all cranky pants and eventually just spitting out “he doesn’t like me, anyway” and Margaery being all, “how do you know?” and Arya, “i’m not a pretty lady,” and Margaery telling her that she is pretty and that she should find out if Gendry likes her because women can be aggressive and make the first move, which Arya would like. Then Arya would just walk up to Gendry and give him a kiss and Margaery would be all proud and Robb’s head would explode.
I don’t think writers realize that “strong female character” means “well written female character” and not “female character who punches stuff and shoots stuff”
Just wait for it.
#oh hey remember when a fun movie#was also a great feminist film#and had a moment devoted to the intersection between racism and feminism#as much shit as these girls had to put up with#there are some women who have even bigger mountains to scale#all wrapped up in a moment without any dialogue
A League of their Own is one of my top 5 favorite films and THIS, right here, is my favorite part. The whole thing was maybe 3 seconds long, but it always stayed with me. 3 seconds, and look at how much is going on. Look at the black women, showing that they, too, have value but more importantly, STRENGTH. And look at the white women, accepting that strength and embracing it. Being AWED by it. It was a small moment in which ALL women, of all colors, came together in a quiet nod against their oppressors. Such a beautiful moment.
Let’s not forget that this movie shattered female stereotypes with their brilliant casting of Rosie O’Donnell as a woman desperate for the love of a man. Meanwhile Madonna, who was considered an alright whore by society at the time, played a truly loving, caring, nurturing woman who spent the bulk of her time teaching other, less fortunate women, how to read. Her extroversion was just a facade. Madonna also gave out a brilliant performance in this film.
And how about the fact that Geena Davis and Tom Hanks were cast as romantic opposites but they didn’t end up together because Geena Davis’s character Dottie was already married and she respected herself enough that she didn’t need his romantic or sexual validation? And even when she thought her husband had died in the war, she still didn’t hook up with Tom Hank’s character because despite it all, at the end of the day he was an abusive drunk. And she valued herself too much.
A League of their Own is a true masterpiece and if you’ve never watched this film, please do yourself a favor and watch it ASAP. You might just accidentally learn something about feminism.
