curated: why I am a feminist film critic

It’s because film journalism is so very unfeminist.

    And that’s why we love what you do, despite all the trolls and occasional disgruntled readers. Thank you.

    In the past, I’ve posted comments like, “Thank you for providing an alternative to the mainstream point of view we usually get,” or, “Thanks for an insightful, thought-provoking review.” These days, I just want to write, “Thank you for being sane on the internet.”

    What Danielm80 said. Now more than ever.

    I have become more feminist, and more willing to say that I am, in part as a result of reading this site.

    (“I myself have never been able to find out what feminism is; I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat or a prostitute.” – Rebecca West, 1913)

  • Same with me. MaryAnn single-handedly opened my eyes. I am so much more aware now. I cringe, I get vocal, I call myself a feminist.

  • CarrieCC

    I come to you when I question what goes on in a film that seems to be accepted by others yet strikes me a sexist. There is so much casual sexism in entertainment, so few questioning it that I am tremendously thankful for your writing. I’m going to try and figure out how to give you a dollar. Or maybe 5.
