    I have to go with Ashley on this one: I REALLY don’t like the prostitute version of Selina’s past. One interpretation of Catwoman, which is reinforced in Batman Returns, is that Selina Kyle is a female fantasy of empowerment. If Batman is a male fantasy of empowerment, power, and wealth, then Catwoman uses her mask and skills to be the uninhibited woman. See something shiny, something you can’t have? Take it. In Batman Returns, it means standing up to the boss that exploits you. Expanding the exploitation exponentially through prostitution, the ultimate exploitation, distracts from the archetype of female empowerment by implying the path to empowerment is through the most unsavory exploitation. A more inspiring Selina Kyle, in my opinion, is the one that overcomes economic exploitation, which is more relatable. But that’s just my two cents! Thanks for the podcast, and all that you do.
