Description

This is the first of a six part series created for Bitch Magazine. Tropes vs. Women explores the reoccurring themes and representations of women in Hollywood films and TV shows. The Manic Pixie Dream Girl is a cute, bubbly, young (usually white) woman who has recently entered the life of our brooding hero to teach him how to loosen up and enjoy life. While that might sound all well and good for the man, this trope leaves women as simply there to support the star on his journey of self discovery with no real life of her own.
