"Not only does #Frozen  effortlessly pass the Bechdel Test within 5 minutes, it’s a story that’s centered around sisterhood and the power that exists inside young women...+Disney was clearly doing their #feminist  homework when they came up with Frozen." -- +Amanda Rodriguez |  #frozenmovie  
Spoiler Alert. Frankly, I was surprised by Disney's latest animated film Frozen. Even though it featured the voice of my beloved heroine Veronica Mars (or as she's known in real life: Kristen Bell), I was pretty sure Frozen was going to feed us Disney's standard company line about princesses and ...

A #feminist  look at #TheCounselor  and that notorious woman-has-sex-with-a-car scene: "It’s not about genuine, self-aware female sexuality. It is ridiculous...The honesty of a man saying, 'What the hell was that?' when a woman is trying to do what society expects her to do to be sexy is a pretty clear indication of how our raunch culture makes fools out of women who try to fit into it." -- +Leigh Kolb

" #AllTheBoysLoveMandyLane  attempts to send a feminist message. Unfortunately, that message spontaneously combusts at the end of the film. It gets so much right, though, especially in its depiction of sexual harassment, catcalling, stalking, and society’s obsession with women who embrace virginity versus women who embrace their sexuality. In fact, all these boys love Mandy Lane (Amber Heard) because they see her as a conquest, a beautiful, “pure” teenage girl who functions as a prize, a trophy." -- +Stephanie Rogers

After  #MileyCyrus ' performance at the VMAs, the "Wrecking Ball" video, and of course, Sinead O'Connor's "Open Letter," it was time to ask, "Why does America really care about Miley Cyrus?"

"And of course the real issue here isn’t that each of these women has had a bout with a dirty dance move and a lot of flesh showing on camera, but rather, that they dared to do it and not feel ashamed. That they dared to do it and own it as a part of who they were, a part of their own sexuality. Because this is what people are really scared of, they’re scared of women’s sexuality just like they always have been. If Miley takes her clothes off and grinds on a wrecking ball in front of their little girl, then someday, their little girl, or little girlfriend, or little wife, might do they same." -- Rachel Redfern
Written By Rachel Redfern. Miley and the tongue. Over the weekend you might have noticed the Sinead O'Connor and Miley Cyrus kerfuffle that happened on the internet. The whole thing started when Miley Cyrus states that the Irish singer was one of her idols; a little while later, O'Connor posted ...

Why Katniss' desire to protect her family in #CatchingFire  makes her a rewarding hero. "Too often female action heroes are a) not motivated at all, because they’re just “Fighting fuck toys” b) motivated only by their own survival, becoming heroes only by failing to become victims. So trite as it may be, seeing Katniss as the cliched tortured protector of her loved ones was satisfying for me." -- +Robin Hitchcock | #TheHungerGames   #CatchingFireMovie  
In an inverse of the source material, Catching Fire is a much stronger movie than The Hunger Games. It looks better, the acting is stronger, and the trickiest story elements—including the Katniss-Peeta-Gale love triangle—are handled more gracefully. If you liked the books or the first film, ...

A #feminist   #horror  film,  #Carrie  isn't about fearing powerful women but rather what they face. "'Carrie' is as much an articulation of a feminist nightmare as it is of a patriarchal one, with neither party coming out on top...From the woman’s perspective, the menstrual blood obviously signifies Carrie’s maturation-coming into her power--which has been marred by fundamentalism." - guest writer Holly Derr | #carriemovie  
Carrie is largely about how women find their own channels of power, but also what men fear about women and women's sexuality. Writing the book in 1973 and only three years out of college, I was fully aware of what Women's Liberation implied for me and others of my sex.

The promotion & discussion around "women's movies" is always different from the way that we talk about more 'serious' drama. Rachel Redfern talks Diablo Cody's #Paradise  & Jerusha Hess' #Austenland  and the prejudice attached to each. "In the world of “women’s film,” the conversation can move quickly from one of support, to one of derision. Even just a film’s association with a topic normally seen as “girly” is instantly belittled and pushed to the background."
austenland. Written by Rachel Redfern. When the trailers for Jerusha Hess' Austenland and Diablo Cody's Paradise first premiered, there was a lot of talk about the two young female directors and their debut films. Each woman had good credits–Cody for writing the academy award-winning script for ...

The best part of  #Gravity ? Sandra Bullock's role offers us a different kind of female film hero. "Not all women leads need to kick ass in order to be strong or complex. We need to see the stories of intelligent, quiet, sensitive women too...It’s okay that Dr. Ryan Stone isn’t shooting guns or beating up bad guys. It’s okay that she’s quiet and vulnerable...In fact, it's a good thing." -- +Megan Kearns | #gravitymovie  
Gravity film. Written by Megan Kearns | Spoilers ahead. I was excited to see Gravity for a long time. A female-centric sci-fi film? Yes, please! I adore Sandra Bullock. Even when she stars in shitty movies, I don't care. I unapologetically love her. While people envision her as a comedian (and ...

On gender in #RunnerRunner : "Women are also given the short end of the stick, to the point where there is almost nothing to analyze to begin with. Rebecca is the most watered down high-stakes damsel in distress that I’ve seen in recent memory...Her sole purpose is to reinforce the hero/villain dichotomy between Richie and Block by exaggerating feminine vulnerability." -- +Erin Tatum | #runnerrunnermovie
