The Representation Project presents a look at how women in the media were treated this year - some high points, yes, but a whole lotta lows. I don’t agree with everything spotlighted as a negative, but overall, it’s a lot to think about.
To spin it in a positive way - I think recently of Steven Universe, with its three diverse female protagonists; Bee and Puppycat, which raised hundreds of thousands; Wendy Davis’ valiant fight for reproductive rights and its international coverage; Catching Fire and Frozen, which did incredibly well at the box office and feature awesome stories of girls rescuing themselves and each other. What were your favourite high points for women in pop culture this year?
Both interesting and important.
