The Force is Too Strong with This One? Sexism, Star Wars, and Female Heroes

I am a big Star Wars fan, and I have really enjoyed the sequel films, The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi,  thus far. My colleague Matt Baldwin and I noticed a lot of sexist bashing of Rey was happening after The Force Awakens was released. We collected some data on how sexists dislike Rey two years ago, but never published it.

We just wrote about these findings at Inquisitive Mind magazine, and you can click here to head over there and check it out.
