Traditional stereotypes of women characterize females as fragile and prone to victimhood. Character assumptions like these inform us that women are passive and infantile. In this paradigm, women become the prey of society’s darker elements. We Are The Ones We’re Waiting For portrays women in their truths: resourceful, indefatigable, brave, hopeful, and determined. Women need not wait for an external liberator. The hero— she is within.
