The adrenaline fueled film has been met with almost unanimous praise by both critics and audience. The incredible action, the fantastic stunts, and the performances of the cast have been lauded by fans. However, not everyone is happy about the long-awaited continuation of Max’s journey through the Wasteland. The issue some people call out is the presentation of the female characters in the film. In the lead up to the film’s release Men’s Rights Activist groups called for their fellow men to boycott the film. They believed that Fury Road was an action film that would trick men into giving in to feminist propaganda. While the outcries of the MRA are perhaps the most extreme in this debate, they are not alone in taking issue with the representation of genders in the film. Some feminists argue that the women are being portrayed as masculine and violent. This portrayal shows women acting like men, and is therefore not feminist because they lose a lot of their feminine nature. As I watched the film, the thought of a feminist storyline struck me too.
