The film that I think addresses the issue of gender equality is Mulan. This film was released by Disney in 1998, at a time when gender discrimination was much more prevalent as compared to the present world. It is quite a revolutionary film as it is very different from other Disney films. Disney films generally address a child audience and hence, the fact that this movie shows that even women can fight in battles, is important in shaping the mindset of children
I visualised myself as someone who was working but also had time to travel and pursue hobbies such as photography, writing etc. I imagined myself living alone but having the support of family and a few trusted friends. I imagined having a sky terrier puppy and walking it every morning. I imagined myself as someone who was experienced and knowledgeable, calm and collected. I think that in order to achieve this I need to focus on being organised, managing my time well and paying attention to every moment and learning as much as I can. I also need to be more adventurous and risk-taking and try new things. Thinking about this made me excited for the future and what it has in store for me.
