I love a good “girls strike back” film, only it genuinely pisses me off that this kind of female empowerment has to come as a result of guys being complete dicks. Why can’t we have a story where the alpha-jock types are supportive and respectful of women from the get-go? I suppose it doesn’t leave you with much of a springboard for the story. ANYWAY, that aside this was a well-constructed film about a teenager at school having enough, and launching an underground ‘zine inspired by her Mum’s activism in the past but hang on no, seriously – why can’t we have a film where this kind of shit doesn’t have to happen to prompt the empowerment? But then, why can’t people just generally be nice…?
