The Women in Film Blogathon is being hosted by John over at Hitchcock’s World and such a great idea to get you thinking about female characters in the world of film.
Here are the rules:
- The female character in question should have qualities that make her strong. That doesn’t necessarily mean better than the guys, just well-written; we’re trying to promote equality here, not reverse misogyny.
- Unlike my previous blogathon, I’m going to be a bit stricter here and say that each entry should only focus on one character. However, if you like you can write multiple entries examining different characters.
- If you can, do try to find less obvious choices. There are a few that I can expect are likely to get picked: Ellen Ripley, Sarah Connor, etc. If you decide to write about any the “obvious” choices, I encourage you to at least try and find something new to say about them.
- You are allowed to pick characters from any film from genre or time period you like.
