Life After Downton - Believe Women
[Life After Downton, Episode 15] - Content warning: this episode contains discussions of several depictions of sexual assault against fictional characters.
This month on the podcast, the Damsels have a lot to rant about in a post-Harvey-Weinstein-scandal media world. After some round-up from our month off, we're diving into two series that deal with violence against women: Jane Campion and Gerard Lee's Top of the Lake, and Harry and Jack Williams's Liar. Frankly, we have to say...we demand better. Why bring up important themes you don't intend to explore adequately? Why take all the nuance out of the threats women face from men in everyday life? And why be so damn icky???
Luckily, we do still have love for some media out there, as we wrap up with an installment of Fabulous Things. So grab whatever beverage helps you deal with life these days, and join us for another episode of Downton Gabby!
