Buffy as a role model for us all

Link the narrative arcs of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BtVS) to the #metoo movement. Buffy manages to be the one who saves the world (with the Scooby gang) whilst working her way through a number of relationships with the ‘wrong’ man. These included the bad boy who can’t be saved, the stalked, the good guy who finished last and ‘beer goggles’. in the context of metoo – how is Buffy conceptualised in present day through this lens?

  • I guess there is some way to link Buffy to the MeToo Movement, seems to be a strange linkage. – Joseph Cernik 4 years ago
