  • Women's Empowerment In Teeth

    throughout the movie from a girl into womanhood. In class we talked about how a woman experiences agency in terms of how her body is read. In this movie, Dawn’s body was always seen as a sex object by herself and others around her. Therefore Dawn obtained agency when she realized the power of her vagina to kill a man.

The fact that the director of a movie was a man had a lot to do with why the agency Dawn obtained was one she seemed to be using for bad. If a woman had written this film, the vagina would not have been portrayed as evil. Either the girl in the film would not have a vagina dentata, or if she did she would obtain a hero in the end and live happily ever after. I believe this movie is completely misogynists because it portrays the vagina as evil and Dawn needs a man to be her hero to save her. It links a woman to a man, and shows a woman cannot be independent. A man believes when he is with a woman he owns her, which is shown in the documentary we watched over breasts. One woman said her boyfriend did not want her to show her breasts because they were his and he did not want anyone else to see them. He tries to have ownership over her. I believe if a man had been a hero to Dawn, she would be linked to him and he would try and have ownership…
