Avengers Director Joss Whedon On Equality, Strong Female Characters + The Absurdity Of Press Junkets.
In the bizarre way that only the internet seems able to regurgitate content years later, I recently stumbled upon this video.
It’s from 2006. Yes, 7 years ago. And, yes, pathetically, it’s still just as relevant.
In it, Avengers director Joss Whedon is honored by Equality Now.
You want to know why movies don’t have strong female characters? Or, more aptly, why they do?
Then watch this. Then share it. By spreading this message maybe – just maybe – we can make a difference.
