Project #73337 - misrepresentations of Asian women

You have to write a full two page paper only focusing on the solution and conclusion.

I will upload more information such as rubric and the prompt.

and you have to quote from some course readings.


Intro: 
In contemporary film and shows, there are multiple misrepresentations of Asian women (includes both characterizations and casting).

-Sexploitation

-Dragon Lady

-Innocent/Geeky

Our solution: proposal for stricter guidelines in screenplay writing and casting



Sexploitation

Asian women are often portrayed as sexual and exotic objects, to be possessed by Western men

Made popular because of World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War as Asian women were thought of as prostitutes who provide comfort from the wars

Examples

Jamie Chung in Sorority Row

Ziyi Zhang in Memoirs of a Geisha

Lucy Liu in Charlie’s Angels



-Dragon Lady: A term used to describe a powerful and dangerous Asian woman in film

Originated from roles played by Anna May Wong around the 1930s

Similar to “Tiger Mother” stereotype

Examples

Kelly Hu in X2

Maggie Q in Nikita

Rinko Kikuchi in Pacific Rim



-Innocent/Geeky

Conversely, Asian American women are represented as overly submissive or obedient

Terms used to describe this:

Geisha girl, Lotus flower, China Doll

There is no middle ground for roles for Asian American Women

Examples

Katie Leung in Harry Potter

Valerie Tian in Juno



-Inaccurate Casting

Asian women of one a specific ethnicity are playing as a character of a different ethnicity

Similar to having non-Asian actors or actresses play in Asian roles

Examples

Arden Cho in Teen Wolf

Jamie Chung in Once Upon a Time

Lucy Liu in Kill Bill



-Solution

Create the Asian American Actress Association (AAAA)

Advocate for a more accurate representation of Asian American women in film

Propose to producers for stricter guidelines in screenplay writing and casting



-Conclusion

The misrepresentation of Asian women in modern film should be challenged. Stereotypes such as dragon lady, innocent, and hyper-sexual do not accurately reflect a diverse population of women.
