A New Original Series- Reframed, Marilyn Monroe

[ Edited ]

Starts Sunday, Jan 16, 9PM ET/PT on CNN.  A new four part docuseries, a look at Marilyn Monroe through the female lens.  Narrated by actress Jessica Chastain. 

 

Immortalized as a sex icon, dismissed as a tragic victim, Reframed: Marilyn Monroe dismantles the conventional narrative to tell the tale of a woman who refused to conform to societal pressures in her pursuit of a career. The series retraces Monroe’s story from budding starlet to Hollywood power-broker, as she navigates the treacherous waters of Hollywood’s casting couch culture and bravely speaks out about abuse at a time when silence was the norm. (From CNN Press Room)

Thank you for posting this @decaf .  I have seen the promos for it but hadn't set it up to record until I saw your post.

@decaf,

Thank you again! I will always watch anything about Marilyn!

I guess I don't normally see these because I watch a lot of other streaming stuff, and don't always look at Youtube tv.

@nana59 I agree.  More revisionist history.  Yes there is lots of abuse.  And yes, a lot of women have used men to climb the ladder at work or in life.  If so, that's not abuse. 

 

My point here is that not all situations are abusive to women and some differentiation needs to be made.  When you make all women victims, you miss the point that some were as powerful at that game or more so than men.  Own up to it.
