Misinterpreting Women in Film Preserves a Stereotypical Patriarchal Society - ... It is vital to relook into the attitudes, brought forth unconsciously, when interpreting films. The overgeneralization of the “femme fatale”, is a rigid stereotype that disregards true portrayal of women. Furthermore, this leads to the reflection of “femme fatale” onto women in reality, causing a blur between oneself and the imposed personality. Additionally, the exaggerated use of heroines as the sole exemplar of women conceals the gender prejudice and injustice rampant in society. As such, culture variations results in the use of “femme fatale” to categorize “femme modernes” to cope with the fear of changing gender roles and in turn, the term “tabula rasa” is employed to discriminate w...   [tags: “femme fatale, prejudice, hierarchy] 567 words
