In the beginning, Kat tells her father and Bianca that she isn't interested in immature high school boys, and that she will not be changing her mind on the matter anytime soon; however, this does not last, and Kat ends up falling for Patrick. When he tries to woo her, Patrick goes up to Kat and asks her how she is (in a very seductive tone), and Kat responds with “sweating like a pig”( Ten Things I Hate About You). Patrick remains persistent, and responds with “now there’s a way to get a guy’s attention, huh”, but Kat immediately fires back with “My mission in life. But obviously I struck your fancy so you see it worked. The world makes sense again”(Ten Things I Hate About You).
Hidden Girl by Shyima Hall (with Lisa Wysocky) tells the story of Shyima El-Sayed Hassan, who was sold into slavery when she was eight years old; however, she learns how to use her experience for good, and spreads the awareness of how slavery is still a huge problem today. Shyima was born on September 29,1989 in a small town near Alexandria, Egypt. She was the seventh of eleven children, causing her family to live in poverty. In Egypt, not going to school, being poor, cheating on your wife, and selling your children were seen as normal, as okay. After her sister Zahra was accused of stealing money from the family she worked for, Shyima was sent in her place.During her time in slavery, Shyima was mistreated.
Yet many so many people believe there is no issue with women in the workforce. When watching Hidden Figures my eyes were drawn to the obvious amount of sexism that existed at this time as portrayed through the movie. Take Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) for example she had to go to court to be allowed to attend an all male university class to take engineering. When the teacher mentioned that they do not have a women curriculum and Mary replied with “well I imagine it’s the same as teaching a man”. I believe this showed a great amount courage for women and showed that women can stand up for themselves and do have a voice and don’t just stand back and watch men treat them horribly.
1960’s Feminism Like I mentioned earlier, “The Help” seems to be an imperfect depiction of the 1960’s so far. And again, feminism was shown in the most stereotypical ways. Yes, it was very empowering to see how women can be liberated, but it was very cliché, feminism could have been shown in much more meaningful interesting ways. A hint of feminism in The Help may be most evident in post-college Skeeter, the young woman who questions restrictions placed on her by society 's traditions. Her Southern socialite best friends have conformed to expectations by marrying, having children (or trying to) and even questioning why Skeeter stayed four years at Ole Miss to finish her degree, while they were dropping out of school.
Although the characters counter numerous stereotypes, the movie fails to portray the events and climate that informed these experiences. Throughout Hidden Figures, the directors have chosen to paint the civil rights movement into the story 's backdrop, ultimately downplaying its eminence and the significant ramifications that would impact the lives of these women. In doing so, the film portrays the pursuit of justice based on merit and not humanity alone. Humiliation, insult, discrimination, and embarrassment filled the lives of blacks all around the country. They were living as second-class citizens in a misinformed time of separate but "equal".
Her film will motivate me to represent and support women in positions of leadership and authority. Her film should inspire all of us to address the misrepresentation of women and most importantly, inspire us to take action towards change derived from empathy and compassion for ourselves and all of
The women interviewed were large feminist icons like, Betty Friedan and Muriel Fox. The film focused on individual cities and the movements within them that advocated for women’s rights. While the film is wonderful, and teaches people about the struggles women went through for their rights, it has some small errors. One issue is that the film presents each issue and as if they are no longer issues. The women speak as if these problems were past battles and the war is already won.
For centuries women have been fighting an ongoing battle for their equal rights, in film it is we can see how strong actress have broken through barriers and dominated the films we watch, Like helena bonham carter, angelina jolie. Now, i didn't want to talk about female involvement in film , because that is topic that answers itself: I want to take the approach of the representation of the female gender in the films we watch. These Women stated above would not have been where they are if it wasn't for the early female actresses like Bette Davis ‘What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?’, Dorothy Mcguire ‘A Tree Grows In Brooklyn’. Actresses that paved the way and put their marked on the film industry have allowed fresh talent to now take hold of roles that represent issues that are concurrent in society. The theory gender in today's world is still almost a grey area, its almost split between what we think should be shown to our children and youth but also split in to habits that are limiting and still questionable.
