Ewan McGregor: ‘Birds of Prey’ Is A ‘Feminist Film’



McGregor pointed out that Mask isn't the only toxic thing the Birds are tackling.
Birds of Prey is a feminist film in how it shines a light on misogyny in various ways.

"What interested me with Birds of Prey is that it's a feminist film. It is very finely written. There is in the script a real look on misogyny, and I think we need that. We need to be more aware of how we behave with the opposite sex. We need to be taught to change. Misogynists in movies are often extreme: they rape, they beat women ... and it is legitimate to represent people like that, because they exist and they are obviously the worst. But in the Birds of Prey dialogues, there is always a hint of everyday misogyny, of those things you say as a man you do not even realize, mansplaining ... and it's in the script in a very subtle way. I found that brilliant."
