And the most important part, the monologue the very real monologue of America Ferrero character, gloria about women:
“You are so beautiful and so smart and it kills me that you don’t think you’re good enough. We have to always be extraordinary but somehow we’re always doing it wrong.
“We have to be thin but not too thin, and we can never say we want to be thin you have to say you want to be healthy. But also you have to be thin.
“You have to have money but you can’t ask for money. Because that’s crass. You have to be a boss but you can’t be mean. You have to lead but you can’t squash other people’s ideas. You’re supposed to love being a mother but you don’t talk about your kids all the damn.
“You have to be a career woman, but also look out for other people.
“You have to answer for men’s bad behavior which is insane but if you point that out you’re accused of complaining. Because you’re supposed to stay pretty for men but not so pretty you tempt them too much or you threaten other women. Because you’re supposed to be part of the sisterhood but always stand out.
“And always be grateful but never forget that the system is rigged so find a way to acknowledge that but also always be grateful.
“You have to never get old, never be rude, never show off, never be selfish, never fall down, never fail, never show fear, never get out of line. It’s too hard, its too contradictory, and nobody gives you a medal and says thank you. And it turns out in fact that not only are you doing everything wrong but also everything is your fault.
“I’m just so tired of watching myself and every single woman tie herself into knots so that people like us. If all of that is also true of a doll just representing a woman, then I don’t even know.”
