Sponsored by Tor Books as part of their #FearlessWomen campaign! Get a free tote bag and a select #FearlessWoman book!
Let’s break the mold of the oh-so-tired female narrative and challenge the ways we have come to accept female roles in film! Join us for a playful and engaging feminist clip show/film analysis presented by Princess Weekes, Assistant Editor of The Mary Sue! Enjoy clips from a curated selection of films and see them through a new, feminist, pop cultural lens. This show is guaranteed to bring a fresh perspective while promoting a healthy camaraderie among event attendees.
Topics covered: Virginity and Innocence, Sex Work (ie Breakfast at Tiffany’s), Body Diversity and Size, Non Traditional Households, The Female Anti-Heroine, Sexual Autonomy, Male gaze vs Female gaze and wish fulfillment.
