Feminist Perspectives

If you’ve been watching horror and sci-fi films, you’ve probably seen a damsel in distress or two in your day. Perhaps a dangerous seductress here or there. And sometimes, maybe even a strong heroine.

These are genres known for examining societal norms and pushing boundaries, addressing our fears in the guises of monsters. And just like all social commentary, it can range from progressive to reactionary.

And sometimes, whether you see a victim or a fighter, a monster or a hero, depends on your perspective.

Our thanks to the Royal Ontario Museum for sharing essays by Andrea Subissati and Dr. S. Trimble.
