Why we need more Wonder Women in the World

Wonder Women just hit the charts recently as it connected to all the teenage girls around the world. The movie was a success because of the way it portrayed women – strong and empowered. It made a huge opening grossing $122.5 million worldwide. We have grown looking at superhero movies portraying the males in power. For the very first time a woman is shown in a position of power and it has worked for viewers.

Such movies send a positive message to girls around the world and make them feel confident. Studies have shown that girls suffer from depression more than boys do.

About 36% girls between ages of 12-17 suffer from depression. While only 13.6% of boys undergo depression in the same age bracket.

Such trends of depression originate from childhood when girls feel that they are not strong enough or smart enough to cope with issues they face. So, when movies like Wonder Women and Hunger Games are shown to the young women, they not only provide entertainment but also impact their thought process and help in spreading awareness on issues that are often under represented like abuse, discrimination, mental health and violence.

In 2015 Pakistani journalist, filmmaker and activist, Sharmeen Obaid came up with an amazing and eye-opening reality based documentary called “The Girl in the River”. It was on the topic of Honor Killing which is still an ongoing debate in the rural cities. The young female in the documentary survived a brutal attack by her uncle, which was made just because she wanted to have a say in whom she marries. It showed how that young woman courageously stood up for herself even when it meant going against her closest ones. Such documentaries give a ray of hope and power to the women silently fighting their battles alone. Similarly, women superhero movies also help in educating new generation on how the women deserve to be treated. Such movies send a message to all genders on how women are not just capable of being housewives but are capable to do much more for themselves and others!
