The Bond Girls
Bond girls, while highly sexualized, are given a large sense of independence and strength. Unlike most action film female characters who end up portrayed as the damsel in distress, Bond girls are in tune with their strength and savvy with their weapons, if needed. One could say that their sexuality/seduction is one of their key weapons. Not to say that a woman's sexuality should be used to seduce and then kill men. But hey, if you're a Bond girl on a mission, it's a pretty sweet form of revenge to take the vulnerable male gaze and use it to distract and then kill them (as seen at 3:15). All in all, I wanted to show these women embracing their femininity as a source of empowerment, rather than a source of domination by their male counterparts.
