“Females are stereotyped” Discuss the representations of women in relation to Different Bond films

A Bond girl is a character or actress portraying a love interest of James Bond in a film, novel, or video game. They occasionally have names that are innuendo or puns, such as "Pussy Galore," "Plenty O'Toole," “Honey Ryder” and "Holly Goodhead." Bond 007 is a fictional character created in 1953 by writer Ian Fleming, who featured him in twelve novels and two short story collections. The character has also been used in the longest running and most financially successful English-language film franchise to date, starting in 1962 with Dr. No. He has been portrayed on film by Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig.

Most leading Bond women are subservient to a master, like in the real world back then before society upset the status hierarchy. The female villains are mostly portrayed as butch lesbian types for example Pussy Galore.

Back in the Swinging 60s when the Bond saga began, women were either air headed bimbos, or, with the advent of social welfare and many new careers open to woman in social work and teaching, they were often butch lesbian types who adopted a masculine persona and clothing rather than feminine in an attempt to be taken seriously by their male superiors

Most leading Bond girls are pitiful pathetic women under the spell of a geriatric egomaniac control freak and are too idle to do anything off their own bat, so they have to wait for someone like Bond to come along and free them from their bondage. The millionaire lifestyle apparently sapping all their strength and will so they can’t escape from the bad guy, who they wanted to be with in the first place.

All Bond women are depicted as useless bimbos if they’re the leading lady, and butch types trying to be nastier than the men if they work for the baddies. Miss Moneypenny has been waiting for so long for Bond to sweep her off her feet...
