“Why do women have to pretend to be something they’re not? … Why do we have to pretend to be helpless when we’re not helpless?” – Midge Maisel from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
WS Celebrates Changemaker, Charlize Theron
In our October celebration of women building hope and peace, Womanscape takes an interesting look at hope in this Tuesday’s article. It features the humorous story of Midge, a 1950’s housewife hungry for economic independence and freedom (starring Rachel Brosnahan) and badass, immortal protector of humanity, Andromache of Scythia (aka Andy, played by Charlize Theron).
Midge is breaking confines and Charlize Theron’s character, Andy, has already arrived. But both women showcase the evolutionary roles of women in society and as leading actors in Hollywood’s entertainment industry. As the daughter of an Afrikaner family who escaped violent abuse as a young child, WS honors Charlize’s empowering success story.
