Wakanda Forever: Part 5 – Strong Women
I’ll be honest, after seeing #BlackPanther with my wife, I was ready to buy her a spear and the Dora Milaje warrior outfit! Shaving her hair is optional, but the elite warriors surely made an impression.
SOMEBODY HELP ME!
There are no “damsels in distress” in this movie. It was refreshing to see women acting from a position of strength rather than weakness. Many of these female characters did what we would stereotypically reserve for men. This movie demonstrated what many of us already know, but rarely see celebrated on the big screen: a woman can be emotionally, intellectually, physically and spiritually strong! A woman can have honor and loyalty to self, family, nation and world. And not just any woman… but a Black woman. And not only were they strong in the film, but the men in their lives had no major problems deferring to their counsel!
