HOW TO PLAY SOCCER IN GYM CLASS:
1. Get the ball
2. Pass it to someone who actually knows how to play
G.D Anderson (via fawcettstudent)
I really love this quote. And I think it is very useful when thinking about female characters in media.
The idea that we need to “make women stronger” is exactly the problem with the “Strong Female Character” trope.This idea that every single lady in a film must be a gun wielding, kung fu master assassin bad ass with a boy and arrow is fundamentally flawed.
Because, yes, we do need more female characters who can kick ass and take names.
But we also need narratives that focus on and empower female characters who are strong in other ways. You don’t need to make a dragon infested castle explode to be an empowered and empowering female character.
