A Tribute to Unlikeable Women in the Movies

Posted on March 4, 2015 at 3:50 pm

I really enjoyed the recent series on “Unlikeable Women” from the folks at Bitch Flicks. I remember a panel of women filmmakers at Comic-Con all agreeing that the code word for making female characters meek and pliable (and giving all the tough dialogue and action to the male characters) was “relatable.” So cheers to the unabashedly, sometimes proudly, “unlikeable” women of the movies, including those saluted in this series.

Of course there are many other great choices. Here are some of my other favorites.
