I wrote about the Hollywood archetype of the bad female boss. https://t.co/eNEqw6XxcD
@AChristineArt thanks for bringing this up. i don’t think it’s bad for women! it’s just not overlayed with explicit feminism, ie, characters talking about feminism and what women owe each other, etc. i personally think that helps make it work better, as a movie. it’s a great movie!
@amandahess This reminds me of rewatching Working Girl recently. The happy parts aren't so happy. Initially the supportive hero is her woman boss. Then that boss steals her idea and we're supposed to feel exhilarated when she's canned cause clearly there's only room for one woman to succeed.
@amandahess @nytimes One of the reasons why I love @TheBoldTypeTV. @MeloraHardin plays a boss who is bad ass, top of her field, and who also takes the time to be a mentor to the younger women in her office. She is an amazing and I legitimately want to work for her!
@amandahess This... with a pro-tip: the token woman at the men's conference table is outnumbered. That is what America's corporate boardrooms look like, still today. (And there is a reason why she is outnumbered. Millennials and GenZ will learn this.) https://t.co/GwqR5QoE69
