Just Hide

IMG_2874Hide your feminity,
it is for your own safety.

Hide your ambitions,
it is for your own happiness.

Hide your feelings,
it is for you own good.

Hide your desires,
it is for your own reputation.

Just hide who you are,
so you will belong.

I’ve been told to hide too many times.
Every time I stepped out I only got stronger.
But I still hide because I think I must.
It is a journey and I’ll get there.

 

 

Wonder Woman!!!

For once I felt very satisfied with a woman in a movie!

The story of Diana Prince was told the way it should have been a long time ago. Girls and boys alike need this and more. A balance needs to be created in all the various genres of movies and the superhero action category needs a lot of work. This a solid step in the right direction.

Baahubali 2: A feminist perspective

I had waited for this movie since 2015, and that is a long time. It was so exciting to finally have a confirmed released date and despite having finals the next week I went ahead and watched it. And it was soooooo worth it.

Yes, the movie did have some flaws but overall it was worth it.

As with all Indian films, it was patriarchal, the film used every possible method to drag the female characters down. I was excited about this franchise primarily because of the strong female characters in the first part. I admired the strong women and how they were portrayed but the second film was cliched and honestly, a little sad.
