What Men Want
What Men Want
Ali Davis is a woman working for a sports agency which is pretty much the premise for the entire film. She works what can be considered a “dream job” that some people would probably die for. But, it is not as easy for her as her male colleagues.
About What Men Want
The agency that Ali works for is clearly a male-dominated company. We are aware that she feels the burden of being a woman in a male-dominated industry very quickly in the film. She is constantly being attacked for acting too much like her male colleagues at work or even being too alpha while dating a man in the film. Throughout the movie, this is a common theme. People around her want her to take a step back from acting like such a leader type and being so driven as a person, but it is the key to her successful career.
What Men Want's Relation To Sport Business
Women in the sports industry is always a topic we like to go back to. Our protagonist in What Men Want constantly experiences being “too much” or “stepping on too many toes” while working at the sports agency. She works as hard as her male counterparts but seems to be the only one experiencing all the backlash. Gender inequality is a common issue in the sports field since it is more stereotypically a man’s industry. This is why it is so important for us to have a film up on the shelf like What Men Want to make sure this discussion never dies down and to keep the industry evolving.
