Who gets to define perfection?
The characters of Dietland offer several different forms of feminism and quests for perfection.
But as Executive Producer Marti Noxon notes in a new behind-the-scenes video, “there are all these different ways that women to submit to… oppression.”
“Trying so desperately to conform… is also a losing battle,” says Noxon.
Plum and Kitty’s distinct quests for perfection are two sides of the same coin.
“The character of Kitty represents a certain kind of feminism…she digs deep to remain shallow,” says Robin Weigert (Verena).
But Verena, Julia and other provide alternatives to Kitty’s view of the world.
