Villain Identified in 'Birds of Prey'; Here's Everything We Know

Margot Robbie will reprise her Suicide Squad role as Harley Quinn (above) in the upcoming Birds of Prey. Robbie will also serve as a producer. Her character is very much her own woman; smart, strong and sassy, she does whatever she feels is best for herself in any particular moment. So it should be exciting to see her lead a project that's been described as a "girl gang movie."

If Harley Quinn and her friends are to be the more heroic characters, then who will dare to be the…

Liberating Words: Prey

The poems in our ongoing “Liberating Words” series were written in an interdisciplinary course for high school juniors at The Winsor School, an all-girls school in Boston, Mass. The course, “The Personal Is Political: An Interdisciplinary Look at Feminism,” is co-taught by Libby Parsley, a History teacher, and Susanna Ryan, an English teacher. The second unit of the course focuses on the history and literature of second-wave feminism—the women’s liberation movement of the 1960’s and 70’s. Students read a compilation of poems by women writers from that period and then wrote their own poems; the assignment asked them to represent an issue or problem they see as central to 21st-century women’s experience through the very personal genre of poetry.

Prey
by Lydia Broderick

girl sits
on train
knees together
she watches her lap but
she is listening
to the man across the aisle

eighth grade health class
they split up boys and girls

taught girls to walk with
keys in fists
just in case
(if you don’t, it’s your fault)
(no excuses)

taught boys not to be afraid
of wanting
it’s natural
(boys will be boys)
(just don’t get caught)

Lowell line weaves through old mill towns
where poor girls had to stand
afraid greedy machines would
devour fingers as well as cloth
she should be glad to be
sitting
on train
knees together
to be listening
to the man across the aisle
just in case

Ten years ago, The Strangers demonstrated vividly that fear could invade the private sanctuary of a family's home in the quietest, most unexpected ways possible. Now, in The Strangers: Prey At Night, the volume has been turned up.

The Novice Prey

The Novice Prey


When a group of women athletes, who compete in different sports, decide, on a hot and slightly tipsy afternoon, to go head-to-head in a contest where they literally put their toned and shapely asses on the line. They are unaware just how difficult it is to get into Gordburg, where the competition will be held. After rigorous testing, both physical and psychological, only four of them make the cut: Martina, a tall, blonde volleyball player, Lynette, a skier. Naomi, a surfer, and, much to her surprise, Alexa, who competes in sports but is not a professional athlete. Shes actually a personal trainer and sometime fitness model. More or less a hanger-on when the athletes gather, she was at first flattered to be given the opportunity to join in. At best, she is usually merely tolerated by the glamorous female athletes. Often she is put down and made fun of, especially by Martina and Lynette. But once she finds that she made the cut, Alexa becomes determined to win the contest and show them all. The contest itself is simple: The four women will each be taken to a different location in the less-developed part of the singular resort town and turned loose in the woods. Eager males will be searching for the women, and whoever is caught last wins. The competitive women also make a substantial side bet. The winner must endure all the carnal abuse that her captors put her through all the way to the end of the allotted time. Alexa accepts the bet, even though she can barely afford it. A city girl at heart, she spends much time studying books on wilderness survival. When the contest begins, she is as prepared as she can make herself.
