Women and Film : Women in Action films

Women in Action films

I recorded this not too soon after Fury Road came out. The big ones are talked up of course - Sarah Connor, Ripley - but I tried to bring up some other ones too, and made a defense for Catwoman as an action heroine (or anti-heroine).

Catwoman can be one. Those of yesteryear balanced more on the side of sex symbol. They paved the way. I like when they show that a woman can have beauty and be physically strong but it shouldn't have to be the case.
