Tropes vs. Women Part 1

   0
The first installment of Anita Sarkeesian's Kickstarter-funded web series "Tropes vs. Women" was released last month. Ignoring all of the nonsense that came out of the creation of this series of videos, I think there is real value in what Ms. Sarkeesian is examining. You might disagree with some things, but her points are valid and really add to the discussion of how women are portrayed in popular culture. I think that the "Damsel in Distress" trope is fine when it is used in an individualistic fashion. But when it is applied too often (as has been the case for the past century), then society begins to adopt this viewpoint as a characteristic of women across the board. I really recommend watching this series and the other videos that are on the page as it makes for really good discussion material.
