Tonight I Watched The Movie Wonder Woman
TBH typically I’m not a huge movie goer but I’ve always enjoyed seeing the superhero movies in theatre.
I was super excited that FINALLY there was a superhero movie with a female lead. I knew I would have some feels but I what I didn’t expect to feel was angry. Yes angry.
About halfway through the movie I realized this, THIS is what little boys growing up watching with each and every single superhero movie, they leave the theatre feeling like they can save the world. I have never experienced that feeling leaving the theatre. Ever. I can not remember a single time in my life I’ve watched a movie with a female lead in which the men completely step aside as she beat up the bad guys and handled it all.
It sounds very silly but I left feeling like I could take over the world. I felt like if she could do it, I can do it too.
This is the feeling every single little girl (and woman) needs to feel, like she can do it too.
This is exactly what we need more of in this world.
