my mom really wanted to see Wonder Woman so we went to the theatre today to watch it.
i wish i could express in words how happy she was, how over the moon and emotional she was, over seeing a movie dominated by women. with tears in her eyes, she gleefully told me how amazing it was that the movie was directed by a woman, had a woman as the hero, and showcased countless women as warriors, as powerful beings.
this is why representation matters, and not just for younger generations. we talk all the time about how girls these days are still starved for decent representation and media; don’t forget that our mothers and grandmothers were even more starved. representation matters for everyone.
