Now we have this Japanese animated film Ghost in the Shell where the main character, Kusanagi is often naked throughout the series. The creators of the film make an effort to pan her naked body over and over again as if the viewers need to be reminded of what a naked woman looks like.
I understand the premise of her trying to be like a ghost and such, but why must she be the one without a shirt on her back? The criminal they were trying to catch was running around fully clothed and was still in this ghostly state under his magic cloak. Why was he not naked like Kusanagi was? Why did the film makers feel like it was necessary to unclothe her and keep the other men in the movie fully dressed? Is this the easiest way for women to fight crime in Japan?
Women in the films we have viewed so far always seem to be the target of some sort of sexual fantasy or desire and I do not understand why this has to the case. Maybe its the genre of science fiction that likes women displayed this way so that when the men figure out exactly what is going on, they can save the women from becoming victims. Science fiction needs to find a way to equalize the status of men and women in movies and not use the curves of a women for their own personal fantasy.
