There is not enough female presentation put out into the world through our own eyes, especially in cinema. More often than not, women are treated as an object or muse. Or you have a semi-progressive female character, but her happy ending depends on a guy. That makes me mad because a female’s sole goal in life should not be her relationship with a man. I’ve heard people say our film is feminist, which is fantastic because it’s not really preaching any political views, it’s just badass women—badass women who just so happen to be unapologetically feminine. They fully embrace who they are, flaws and all, and that’s beautiful.
