“Opressed Majority”

Trigger warning: Sexual Assault

Eleonore Pourriat’s short film presents a world reversed.

The ten minute film literally reverses the sexist paradigm, presenting women as the one’s in control, placing them in the position of the sexist, misandrist, and cat-calling characters and a young, stay-at-home Dad who suffers through these injustices and one account of sexual assault after defending himself from a gang of jeering women.

Every small detail bespeaks the misogyny which rules our modern society, despite its role reversal; Pourriat’s film raises all the right questions and it’s about time society answered them honestly.
