the film criticism aspect of cyber | by maryann johanson

‘Vanity Fair’ can recognize sexism and unfair treatment of women in Hollywood…

…as long as it happened 70 years ago.

Yup, it’s The Week in Women, my regular column at the Alliance of Women Film Journalists, posting a little late this weekend. Enjoy.

    Re the “dolls”: Grr! Pastels! Roger smash! Or slightly more seriously, use of desaturated colours indicates a level of fear about the sameness and pallor of these people that’s quite worrying, especially as it seems to be justified.

    we’re as much to blame – people like looking at beautiful things – look at the cover of most female magazines. Didn’t Vogue or some other magazine do a “black” model issue? That’s just a nod towards tokenism. It’s nice that they do it from time to time but it’s never going to be the norm.

  • what makes these pallid little sticks “beautiful”? i happen to like vibrant colours and vivid people… not that i would buy a copy of VF in any event.
