YouTube Selection: ScreenPrism’s “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Pure Fantasy Or Feminist Trailblazer”

Is Lara Croft a feminist hero or a male fantasy? The women at ScreenPrism take a look at the character to determine just that.

There’s a new Tomb Raider movie out now, and sure, you can go look up the movie reviews by the Gabbing Geek crew, but is Lara Croft, as played by either Angelina Jolie or Alicia Vikander, a masculine fantasy or a feminist icon?

The women at ScreenPrism try to figure that out.

ScreenPrism does a good job of looking into, among other things, the feminist angle of various pop culture figures, and now they turn that look at longtime video game character (and movie heroine) Lara Croft.  What do they conclude about how feminist a figure Lara Croft is?  See for yourself.
