My group’s thesis is about how the movie resists the dominant narrative of how women are less capable than men. It resists what women are traditionally supposed to be like. A scene that shows this is (41:17-41:03) when Mulan gets the arrow before anyone else could. She was able to do this by carrying weights that also proved she had discipline and strength.

One thought on “Mulan


    I think this is a great thesis and message. Most movies we watched for this project supported negative stereotypes that can be harmful for children to watch. I think Mulan is a good example of a positive influence, especially for young girls to show them that women can be just as capable, if not more, than men.
