How to stop Hollywood being so sexist: Geena Davis’ feminist manifesto

How to stop Hollywood being so sexist: Geena Davis’ feminist manifesto | Ax Wound: Gender and the Horror Genre Scoops up thought provoking content showcasing diverse points-of-view relating to themes of gender, sexuality, and culture via horror films and art. | Scoop.it

"In 1991, Geena Davis starred in Thelma & Louise, a road movie about two women who become fugitives, which led critics to describe it as a “feminist manifesto for the 90s”.

 

Two decades on and the actress is so disillusioned with the film industry’s attitude to women she has drawn up a feminist manifesto of her own with “two easy steps to make Hollywood less sexist”.

 

In a column for The Hollywood Reporter’s 'Women in Entertainment Power 100' issue, the Oscar-winner bemoaned the gender imbalance in media and entertainment and called on film makers to introduce more female characters into their movies to provide positive role models for the young."

As we've explored in this month's horror series, there's a lot--both good and bad--to discuss when it comes to the intersection of horror, women and feminism. One movie that continues to come up in feminist horror discussion is Ginger Snaps.
Hannah Neurotica 's insight:

He said, "I want to do a teen girl werewolf movie" and I said, "That's nice." He said, "You should write it."

Looking at Friday the 13th, it’s easy to see why the film was so controversial. Many feminist groups were so angered by these types of movies in the 1980’s.

Lifetime's 'Lizzie Borden Took An Ax' Is Another Reminder of Lack of Female ...
Film School Rejects
While there are several notable female horror icons, the number in comparison to their overall male counterparts is less than even.
Hannah Neurotica 's insight:

 1).
"While the horror genre has always been hospitable to women in terms of heroes and protagonists — the Final Girl being a role unique to the genre in itself — the rarity of female villains in horror is palpable."
 
As a horror fan I can attest to the fact that there are quite an impressive number of female villains. It is true that there isn't an equivalent female villain with the staying power of Freddy, Jason, Michael, Pinhead, etc. but the standalone list of female villains is rather extensive -- especially when you look at horror from around the world. In fact the the sub-genre of Witchcraft is loaded!
 
2).
"We don’t really care to know why Jason Voorhees is out there destroying campers’ special summer romances at the lake...."
 
Horror fans are passionate mother fuckers. We know every last detail of why Jason kills, why Michael kills, that Freddy was a child molester burned by angry parents who is now back and haunting there offspring. Horror fans get very fanatical and love soaking in all these details.. You state that we know more about female killers history but I believe any horror fan would equally be able to answer the question "Why is Jason killing people?"
 
 
Other then that I can't comment since I have not actually seen the Lizzie Borden movie. I do however plan to.....
