How do you weigh your dreams against the world, as narrated in Greta Gerwig’s Little Women

This scene features an empowering conversation between Saoirse Ronan’s Jo and Emma Watson’s Meg…

Greta Gerwig’s Little Women is a movie we can all relate to, with its powerful dialogues ringing like a bell in our ears. One such moment in the film was when Jo (Saoirse Ronan) questions Meg’s (Emma Watson) decision of getting married. Meg’s response to her sister doubting her choice steals the show.

Women today are breaking grounds in every area, be it politics or Hollywood. In this run of feminist movements, you’ll see a world led by women breaking stereotypes, spending more time in the workplace, and less at cultivating homes and raising families. While we think this is a gradual yet important change the world needed (women being “allowed” to work), we often forget the value of respecting one’s freedom of choice. The shift of this movement has caught us struggling for our rights on equal pay, opportunities, and respect. However, our tendency of degrading homemakers also increases looking at each other’s backs. Isn’t that considered stereotypical as well – earning women finding the sense of superiority looking at homemakers?

It is encouraged to achieve your personal goals but what if your goal towards satisfaction is building a family and looking after your loved ones? Is that something that doesn’t deserve appreciation?
