Hello everyone, This post is going to be a little different from the others.
As you know I'm studying to become a journalist and lately I'm really busy with some essays I have to do for my uni. The subjects that I have chosen for these essays are related with feminism and I'm starting to realise that all those feeling that I have in my everyday life, as social pressure are not unique but every girl in the world has been judged just because she's a girl. First of all I want to suggest you to see two movies: "Frida Kahlo" and "Thelma & Louise" It is wonderful that Hollywood have created some movies that are showing another aspect of women, the aspect that shows them powerful and independent.
I would like to dedicate this post in the movie "Thelma & Louise" and just because I feel really related with all those feeling those girls had. You should know that the film presents two ordinary girls, Thelma which is married with a repressive husband that cheats all the time and doesn't have any respect for his wife, and Louise that seems more independent as she works as a waitress and has her own house.Those girls in the end will change dramatically because they will realise that the modern society has no place for them.
During the movie you can see many forms of women's oppression and violence, from rape to looks full of criticism.
Reasons you have to see this movie(again and again)
- you'll feel stronger as a person
- you'll realise that even a weird gaze it's not ok
- will teach you the importance of fighting even if you don't have any chances at all
- Brad Pitt is hotter that ever..
- And the most important part, you'll learn to support every girl in the world
Also you should note that women's oppression sadly starts from women.
So we should realise that we have the opportunity to change this world and make it fair for everyone.
We should just be united and support each other to make it happen.
That means that the next time you'll see a girl to be judged harshly for no reason, even if you don't know her at all, defend her and don't let anyone to put her down. Just think that next time it might be you in the same place. Be united! Be strong! Be proud to be woman!
