We all know how women are treated in the media compared to men. In today’s discussion, we talked about how in movies/t.v shows women are there to fill a role for the male lead. Whether it be to bring up his spirits, teach him a lesson or help him with his past, she’s there for him until he regains his happiness and doesn’t need her anymore.
There is a term for this, it is called Manic Pixie Dream Girl. I only heard for this term once- when I was attending an event. At first, I wasn’t sure what it meant, then after it was explained to me, I got it and saw that, yes, it does fit in many of t.v shows/movies I’ve seen.
