Teen Voices Partners With NYS Women’s Suffrage Commission

BestsellerMagazine.com - CATEGORY Prime Report: TITLE

Consider the film Hidden Figures. Taraji P. Henson plays NASA math genius Katherine Johnson who works in a building where there are no bathrooms for black women. She must run across campus through the rain to use the “colored” bathroom until her boss, portrayed by Kevin Costner, saves the day by tearing down the sign and making a speech about the evils of segregation. But that it didn’t happen. Vice News reports that in real life, Johnson decided to use the white bathroom on her own. By characterizing Costner as the white male savior, it diminishes Johnson’s actions and takes away her power. It sets up the man as the hero for the woman. Now imagine the scene where she is the hero of her own story, deliberately marching into the white bathroom as the real Johnson had done 50 years earlier.
