Pop Culture and Sexualized Violence

Luckiest Girl Alive and Promising Young Woman

What does it mean to be a survivor? How does sexualized violence affect women? The movies have different arcs. Both films examine the collateral damage of being a survivor of sexualized violence. One is a triumph of sorts and the other is a revenge fantasy. Both are provocative and left me with a sense of unease and understanding.

I’m going to say something controversial. I think that survivors will react quite differently to these movies than someone who has no personal familiarity with sexualized violence. I’m still ruminating about these two films and have more to say, but I need to articulate them in my mind before I can blog about them.
