Mulan

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.

    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.
