How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Why do male superheroes, such as Spiderman and Batman, dress in spandex-like costumes that cover them from head to toe, while Catwoman is attired in circulation constricting leather pants, with a bare midriff, bosom enhancing bra and four-inch stilettos?

How would you define female empowerment? What yardstick would you use to measure it?

Catwoman is told that she has been given the opportunity use the opposite attributes within herself, and by accepting who she is-all of who she is—she will become free, and freedom is power. How do you feel about this advice? Are there some qualities of our personality that we should try to control or suppress? Does no rules equal real freedom?
