Protests against Tarantino
Posted by charliegrrl on September 15, 2007
This week feminists in Glasgow and Liverpool demonstrated against Tarantino.
Before protesting the film screening of Death Proof, SWAP picketed Tarantino doing a signing at Virgin, at which he reacted angrily to SWAP’s cries of ‘Shame on you!’. This was caught on film so hopefully we will have it to show on the blog.
Feminists in Liverpool also held a succesful demo outside the film screening a few days later, and managed to get people in the Question and Answer with Tarantino, probing him about the ethics of his film and the rapist doll.
The protests got good media coverage too
These protests must have been a slap in the face for Tarantino, as he is usually acclaimed for making films that empower women. But this goes to show the male version of women’s empowerment is bullshit. We can firmly say us women are not impressed and that Tarantino is a prick. Lets hope he hangs his head in shame knowing his face is that of Rapist No1.
Thanks to all those who organised and attended the demos.
