What 'The Women Of Wall Street' Would Really Look Like

Posted: Updated:

Ever wondered what "Wolf Of Wall Street" would be like with the gender roles swapped? Well, we've found the answer.

In the spirit of the feminist parody of "Blurred Lines," director Nicole Donadio brings us "The Women Of Wall Street." The parody mimics the original "Wolf" trailer scene for scene -- with one small difference: all of the gender roles have been reversed. "The Women Of Wall Street" includes everything from half-naked men dancing atop office desks to boisterous women in suits getting drunk at work. The parody perfectly illustrates the problematic gender roles seen throughout the film.

In a blog about the trailer, Donadio asks the very poignant question: "Why can men behave like this?... 'Boys will be boys.' It’s a simple phrase that makes inexcusable actions excusable -- a phrase that refuses to retire even with age." She goes on to explain: "Would anyone ever make this movie? Probably not. Most of society feels women aren’t supposed to act this way, but in my world for a brief 2 and ½ minutes, they can."

"The Wolf Of Wall Street" received some harsh criticism for its alleged glorification of debauchery and shamelessly sexist behavior, so it's refreshing to see the script flipped. We think Geena Davis would be damn proud.
