“Before Big Little Lies, how many other films and television shows have portrayed women who regret becoming mothers? We’ll wait.” For Wear Your Voice Magazine, March 2017.
“In honor of Women’s History Month as well as the upcoming Twin Peaks revival, here are some alternate readings of the female denizens of that strangely frightening little mountain town. Many of these archetypes apply to multiple women at different times in the series. I’ve chosen the one for each that is most representative of her overall journey.” For Wear Your Voice Magazine, March 2017.
“Emerald City gets full marks for social commentary and diversity — including a Latina Dorothy and a black queen of Oz, but it’s not without its faults.” For Wear Your Voice Mag, March 2017.
“A clear demonstration of its ongoing misogyny problem, HBO still caters to that “perv side of the audience,” who the channel believes enjoys the constant and graphic sexual objectification of women. It’s such a shame, because if they really needed this level of full frontal nudity, the network had the perfect opportunity with Westworld to feature both males and females equally, since both males and females equally fell within that android slave narrative. Instead, they chose to toe their misogynistic party line, and focus on objectifying women to the point where it became a disgusting display of pure unadulterated sexism.” For Wear Your Voice Mag, December 2016.
“What The 100 was telling me, on no uncertain terms, is that an ethnicity that makes up one of the Earth’s most populous regions did not survive into the far future. What in the actual fuck.
Stopped in my tracks, I started thinking about all the different dystopian stories I’ve watched over the years, to realize over and over again that South Asians often don’t exist in the future. We’ve been erased.”
