Disappointing Misogynism in The Social Network
I very much enjoyed seeing The Social Network but was dismayed at the sexist representations of women. Except for perhaps girlfriend Erica Albright, all women were shown as sex objects. Even if it is true that this really was the environment in which Facebook was conceived, I am still dismayed then at the sexist environment of these kinds of startups. For an interesting discussion, see The Wrap.
