This article is pretty interesting. If you already didn’t have enough reasons to love the Hunger Games, here’s another. It’s pretty amazing how the two main characters challenge the typical gender roles (also know as a strong male and a helpless female). It’s very obvious that Katniss is not the stereotypical female in movies– she’s a kick ass female lead who can do everything a man can do but probably does it better. She doesn’t do typical female things, instead she’s really know how to hunt and kill with a bow and arrow.
Peeta however isn’t the traditional male, he really takes on the role as the “girlfriend”. I won’t repeat the article but check it out, it’s fantastic.
