Badass Femmes: The Women from 'Raze'Badass Femmes Crome Yellow
Badass Femmes is a bi-weekly column that I write on Crome Yellow about all the Badass Females in pop culture that has shaped my life.
Raze doesn’t mess around, namely because it showcases a woman’s greatest fear (dying at the behest of a man), and strips its female characters of their freedom, showing who they are at their most feral, primal and unhinged. The premise of Raze is simple, exhibiting women who are survivors first and foremost, thrown into a ring and forced to fight their fellow female in a fight to the death – and all for entertainment. It’s the ultimate betrayal of each characters’ identity and worth, but also a celebration of women and sisterhood, as our heroines rise above their shitty circumstances to beat the system in the ultimate act of perseverance and sacrifice.
