MTV: ”The Best Hero award acknowledges a cinema’s most kickass character that embodies prowess, power and vigor.”
Not a single woman is on the list for best hero, and I find that ridiculous and wrong. If no one else, Katniss Everdeen should be added to represent the population of powerful women that our generation has become. Don’t let a strong hero like Katniss be beat out by Bilbo Baggins and a Channing Tatum character most people didn’t see. Please sign the petition. (via cinnasownmockingjay)
Katniss Everdeen IS a hero and she was one of the most kickass characters in last year’s cinemas. She embodied prowess, power and vigor and she is only seventeen years old. Suzanne’s character deserved to at least be on the list.
Top movies of 2013 in the US
Katniss was excluded from this list of heroes because she is a woman.
She is the main character of the number one highest grossing movie of 2013, and she is not included, and Channing Tatum’s character of the forty-sixth highest grossing movie of 2013 is.
There is no explanation other than MTV’s blatant sexism.
Women can be heroes too.
