Why is nobody talking about this interview?
Interviewer (min. 2:24): “There are lots of strong women in this film”
Jack: “Lots of women. They all get described as "strong” women, but they are women"
Finally. There is no need to say “strong” women. Women ARE strong. People say “strong women” like they are talking about aliens or a rare species.
Thank you, Jack Lowden!
Wake Up America Day. 1917. James Montgomery Flagg.
27 5/8 x 40 in./70.3 x 101.5 cm
In a design far more Modern than its time, Flagg shows us a stylized minuteman in flat planes of red, white, and blue rousing America to the call of Wake Up America Day. Held on the anniversary of the Battle of Lexington, President Wilson had declared war on Germany just two weeks prior – and this Day was supposed to be a giant calling to arms of American men to join the fight.
I know you’re still young but I want you to understand and learn this now. Marriage can wait, education cannot. You’re a very very bright girl. Truly you are. You can be anything you want Laila. I know this about you. And I also know that when this war is over Afghanistan is going to need you as much as its men maybe even more. Because a society has no chance of success if its women are uneducated Laila. No chance.
“So we have a more traditional field piece about women in conflict – their role in war and peace – and this other one, like, ‘Why do the Kurds love Trump?’ To hear someone sing Trump’s praises in another language is only more bizarre than in English.”–Razan Ghalayini
