After A Good Year In Film For Women, Mrs. Claus Waits For 2018
Three of the most popular films in theaters in 2017 featured strong female leads, including "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," "Beauty and the Beast" and "Wonder Woman," according to the Jan. 1, 2018, edition of The New York Times.
This is why I think 2018 will be a big year for Mrs. Clauses around the world.
When I first started to post brain pickings on Facebook, suggesting that I may don a white wig this holiday season, I got a bit of backlash from people who didn't want her to change. But as I explored her origins, I discovered that she was never as fleshed-out as her jolly mate. Traditionalists may not have wanted her to wear a pants suit, but I argued that she wasn't well developed to begin with. If Santa can survive multiple updates through the years, so can Mrs. Claus, who I believe makes cookies and has her own jet.
Like all underestimated superheroes who save the world, Mrs. Claus is vulnerable, caring and married to a Christian saint. She is sweet as eggnog, but she won't shovel reindeer droppings from anyone except Rudolph and the team. Why can't she be gentle and strong at the same time?
