In each episode she explores a new book and theme that challenges women’s representation across genres and times. Episode 3: Utopian Female Bliss, Mrs. Dalloway and Barbie. Kasia is joined by Dagmara again, as they continue their discussion of Mrs Dalloway. They draw on an intriguing comparison of Woolf’s masterpiece and the iconic Barbie movie, uncovering unexpected connections between the seemingly disparate words. At the centre of their discussion, they explore the underlying male violence, drawing on Clarissa’s relationship with Peter and Septimus. They bring forth the subtle but powerful critique of male domination, manipulation and societal expectations surrounding marriage.
