My friend sent me this video from an old episode of “Superstars of Dance.” An Argentinian soloist, Carolina Cerisola, performs, and her scores range from 4 to 10. My initial reaction was, “You go girl!,” but the comments of the male judges made me slightly uncomfortable. (The dance starts 1 minute in, if you want to fast-forward).
Do you think this video is an example of feminine empowerment or shows a stereotypical siren, what most women don’t want to be? Does a woman’s power stem partly from her sexuality?
