Patty Jenkins counters James Cameron's macho criticism of 'Wonder Woman'

The director and screenwriter James Cameron said the film Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot and which became the most profitable superhero film in history, was a throwback to feminism. In an interview with the British newspaper The Guardian, Cameron caused controversy by driving in a contemptuous and sexist way throughout Patty Jenkins. “The applause that Hollywood is giving itself for Wonder Woman is a mistake. She has become an objectified icon, for the same thing that macho Hollywood has always done", said.

Cameron tried to justify something unjustifiable by citing one of his creations, the character Sarah Connor of the movie Terminator (1984), played by the actress Linda Hamilton - Cameron as well as a screenwriter, was also the director of the film. "I'm not saying I didn't like the movie, but I thought it was a throwback to feminism. Sarah Connor was an icon, but she was not pretty: she was strong, troubled and earned public respect for her courage“, Finished.

Patty Jenkins countered James Cameron's criticism of his latest work. The filmmaker used his social networks and gave the director a real feminist concept bath, saying that his position is nothing new and that because Cameron is not a woman, he doesn't understand how they feel. "James Cameron's inability to understand what Wonder Woman is and what it represents for women around the world is not surprising. For although he is a great filmmaker, he is not a woman. Strong women are incredible. Your compliment for my film Monster - Desire Killer and our portrait of a strong woman, even though she was mistreated, was very willingly“Jenkins started.

And she continued to stress that being a powerful woman does not just mean standing out in terrible and dramatic situations. "But if women always need to be tough and tough to be strong and we are not free to be multidimensional or celebrate an icon of women everywhere because she is attractive and lovable, then we have not come that far. I believe that women can and should be everything, just as male protagonists should also be“.

And finished. "There is no right or wrong type of powerful woman. And the widespread female audience that made the film such a success can, without a doubt, choose how to judge their own icons of progress“.
