Brit Marling schreibt über die Notwendigkeit neuer und anderer Geschichten jenseits von Binaritäten und Gender Stereotypen!
I don't want to be the strong female lead!
"Even the spirited Antigone, the brave Joan of Arc and the unfettered Thelma and Louise meet tragic ends in large part because they are spirited, brave and unfettered. They can defy kings, refuse beauty and defend themselves against violence. But it’s challenging for a writer to imagine a world in which such free women can exist without brutal consequences.
We live in a world that is a direct reflection of these stories we’ve been telling. (...)
Excavating, teaching and celebrating the feminine through stories is, inside our climate emergency, a matter of human survival. The moment we start imagining a new world and sharing it with one another through story is the moment that new world may actually come."
In pop culture, women are often objectified and disposed of. But even when we’re not being victimized, the alternative leaves much to be desired.
