Which girls stories made the greatest impression on you?
The story that made the most impact on me was the story about Yasmin. The reason this story was the one I felt had the greatest impression was because of the way the story was told. She tells what happens like it was fight between a superhero an supervillain. I think this had such an impact because this is the way a child would see the situation I am still unsure of what exactly happened to Yasmin and the man that she fought. I think that the way she told the story was a coping tactic to explain a traumatic experience and something she did not understand.
“One girl whit courage is a revolution” after watching the film what dose that phrase imply?
One girl whit courage is a revolution, I think it means that if one girl will stop following the path she is expected to follow other will to, an in that way inspire change. The way we change someone’s view on for example girls going to school and getting an education is by slowly making it the norm. And if one girl starts by going against the norm people will follow and people will show support, there is still people that will work against it but those types will slowly dwindle away.
Are you able to relate to their lives in a way that lets you empathize rather than sympathize?
I can sadly not empathize so much as sympathize when it comes to the girls situation. They live in such different stations that I can not relate to it is to foreign for me, as I live in a rich and developed country I cannot relate to the poverty they are affected by, As I am male I cannot relate to the discrimination that these girls experienced . But it is still easy for me to sympathize as the situations they are in would be horrible for anyone to endure
What are the messages from the film that you think will resonate most strongly whit people who are not already familiar whit this issue?
The message from the film that I think will resonate the most whit people that are not familiar whit these issues is that there is still a lot of girls around the world that still cannot decide for themselves or control their own life, and also the number of girls that does not get to go to school will also be one of the more shocking parts.
