Laura Shapiro’s Stay Awake- Don’t Get Pregnant on T.V.

This video shows how women are portrayed in science fiction. They are shown as basically baby machines and forcible rape or forcible implantation is common. The clips of videos are very creepy and portray pregnancies as gruesome and terrible. I think this has some political connotations as well, showing how women and reproduction are viewed.

  1. The politics of this very disturbing video are pretty clear! How could you use McCloud to analyze this video: realistic for sure. We could say “scene to scene” but there is also a film term, “montage,” that refers to the splicing together of short scenes. That will be one of our challenges: knowing when to use McCloud, when to move to the language of film.
