(23rd September 2016) I'm very grateful to those subscribing to the column - I hope you are enjoying reading it as much as I enjoy writing it. I have a long list of films waiting to be decoded - from new and upcoming releases, to older titles - so stay tuned! Another great year ahead. Thanks for reading!
Briana Bryon      7/20/16 10:56 AMStill really enjoying your series. It has really made me think. Do you think you could do a movie or two that got it right? Also what about the hunger games? Could you teach us about those movies? Thanks again! Oh, Buffy is still totally feminist right??
Briana Bryon      7/08/16 4:52 AMAvengers:Age of Ultron was very hard to stomach. But, you made well executed points. Joss Whedon is the unofficial feminist flag flyer in Hollywood so the pressure is on him. He can do no wrong as far as I am concerned! Maybe he was forced to portray black widow the way he did by a studio bigwig, forced at gunpoint? Yes, I'm sure that's what happened. Thanks for making me think and writing such an intelligent piece. Will read the rest.

Sandra Robinson      5/25/16 1:26 PMI have only read the first chapter but I am thinking, "Yes! Yes! Yes!" Sexism among women is still huge and the stereotypes horrific. I can't wait to read more. Keep up the great work!
B. R. Turnage      1/12/16 12:02 AMI agree that women's voices are silenced and subsumed into stereotypes about women's roles. The stereotypes are so ingrained in our culture that people are entirely unaware that there is something "wrong." In fact it is shown in several studies that women that buck female stereotypes are punished socially. Even the movie Fargo, where the lead is a pregnant police officer, the same police officer downplays the events of her day so as not to (heaven's forbid) make her husband feel less successful than her. The character can be a police officer and pregnant and be highly successful at her job but she may not emasculate her husband by pointing out she is more ambitious than him. Sigh.
