Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. For entries of other participants, visit her site for the link up. This week focuses on strong female characters. I think the word 'strong' could mean many things - physical strength, women standing up for themselves, women with personality, and so on. Here are my picks this week:
Wonder Woman - Diana Prince thrived in an island filled with strong women. She has grown up to be opinionated and to stand for truth. She is not only strong physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. She is quite a superhero on her own right, and I cannot wait to see more of her in DC movies.
Alice Through the Looking Glass - While Alice isn't probably the first person to enter your mind when it comes to this theme, I do think that she is a strong character, and she comes to her strength in the sequel. She rejects the norm, and knows what she wants. She also embodies a strong determination, whether it is to help out a friend, or to be free to dictate her future.
Hidden Figures - Unlike my first two picks, this features three strong female characters, and how they pushed themselves to get what is rightfully for them. The core of their challenges was similar with each other, and to see them succeed in a field where they were not treated equally with their peers was very empowering and inspiring.
