What “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” will teach you about feminism.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer is more than an “old” cheeky supernatural drama series, it is a guide to young women on how to embrace their femininity, break stereotypes and be a boss.

In 1997, Buffy The Vampire Slayer made its debut following the failure of the film version that was made in 1992. The show surrounds the life of Buffy: a female high school student who is chosen to dedicate her life to destroying vampires and saving the world. But trust me, it’s much more than this.

After blowing through the 7 seasons in less than 6 months on Netflix, let me tell you why you should too:

  1. Do you know how the blonde “final girl” always dies in horror films? Same, but Buffy is not one of them. Throughout horror film history, the blonde girl archetype’s sole character is simply being the “final girl” who is killed in the movie. But Buffy, a beautiful blonde young woman, challenges this stereotype— showing that women are much more than that.
  2. You can be bold, self-reliant, and a kick-butt while also being “feminine”. Buffy is a strong female character who shows undeniable bravery and fills a role traditionally taken by “masculine” men. At the same time, Buffy unapologetically expresses her femininity while remaining a dominant figure. If she can be both, so can you.

This show is the all-time perfect binge-worthy series— escape into a magical world while feeling empowered and proud to be a woman!
