One response to “Foreword: Feminist Dress

    This redesign of the (arguably) feminist character Merida from Brave is getting a lot of press – there are some substantial differences. I think the director hit on an important one when she spoke of the redesign having a “come hither” look on her face. John Berger said something like: “Men look at women. Women watch themselves being looked at.” The original Merida is a subject, she is looking out at the world; the new one understands herself as object, she looks out at other people looking at her.
