Response to the Film:
I think that is was a great film showing girls that they can do more than they think. Just because it is an all male sport/event doesn’t mean you can try to do some of the things they can. She tried to do the best she can in what she did. When she first said that she wanted to I thought her father would turn her down. But I was wrong. He said it was a great idea to keep it running in the family. But they talked to the elders about it they said no which I found to be a surprise because they could be expanding the range of food they are getting. Getting girls to follow through with there dreams of doing something men mostly do it a step up because men look down on women most of the time because they don’t think they can handle what they do.
Response to the Article:
I think that it could have been staged because some of it looked a bit fake. but if they say it not I guess I’m will have to take their word for it. I think it would have been hard to film that in the moment. I mean it all happened so fast. They must have some great photographers. When they show how it all happened it kind of reminds me what I am able to do. I dont have to do just girly things. I can play sports that boys might be better at. As long as a work hard at it I can do it.
