For Women Everywhere

After some unfortunate incidents regarding the treatment and objectification of women on campus at some of America's great universities, I decided to try to put together something that might help women to strike back. A rallying call, if you will, using the power of film to create a movement that will help them strike back.

EXT. Courtyard- DAY

Camera pan over a blue and white SIGN that says "Campus Women's Center". It's a cold, gray winter morning, and standing there under the sign is the FLY GIRL, a haughty-looking dark-haired girl who steps forward-

FLY GIRL
Ten hut! Eyes FORWARD!

There's an explosive PAH of condensation from the breath of LIEUTENANT ALICE RAIN. She is a hillbilly from the mountains of West Virginia, and has one defining physical characteristic: a long SCAR running down her neck, as if she made a mistake shotgunning a beer once. This scar will never once be mentioned.

LT. ALICE
My name is Lt. Alice Rain, and I'm putting together a special team. And I need eight soldiers. Eight...Shrew-ish....Amer-ican sold-iers.

Pan across the legs of eight SORORITY WOMEN, all stepping forward in synchronized motion, their identical UGG BOOTS scuffing the pavement. They are all dressed identically in LEGGINGS, MINISKIRTS, DESIGNER SCARVES, and NORTH FACE JACKETS/PULLOVERS.

LT. ALICE
Now, y'all might'a heard rumors about a midnight cookout run happenin' soon. Well, we'll be leavin' a little earlier. We're going to be droppin' onto campus, dressed as sorority sisters. And once we're in enemy territory, as a bush-thwacking, guerilla army, we're goin' to be doin' one thing and one thing only: p0wn'n frat bros.

Pan across the Gucci, Tory Burch, and Louis Vuitton HANDBAGS the sorority women are carrying.

LT. ALICE
Members of the Inter-Fraternity Council have conquered this campus through intimidation, rohypnol, and flagrantly sexist social norms. And that's exactly what we're gonna do to them. Now I don't know about y'all, but I didn't come down from the underdiversified commodity economy of the Appalachian mountains, buy Halloween costumes designed to snugly fit a 12-year-old girl, and fight my way through the postmodern social networking of PanHel rush to teach frat bros lessons in humanity. Frat bro's ain't got no humanity. They're the foot soldiers of white male heterosexual privilege. That's why each and every son-of-a-Michigan-fan we find wearin' a popped collar, they're gonna die.

Fly Girl smirks in slow motion.

LT. ALICE
We will be cruel to the frat stars, and through our cruelty, they will know who we are. They will find the evidence of our cruelty, in the disembowed, dismembered, and disfigured bodies of their brothers we leave behind us. And the frats will not be able to help themselves from imagining the cruelty their brothers endured at our hands, and our stiletto heels, and the edge of Juicy Campus and CollegeABC. And they will be sickened by us. And they will talk about us. And And when the Broseph's close their eyes at night, and their sub conscious tortures them for the evil they've done, it will be with thoughts of us, that it tortures them with. (beat) Sound good?

All of the Sorority Women step forward.

SORORITY WOMEN
Yes Ma'am!

LT. ALICE
I got a word of warning for all you would-be feminists. When you join my command, you take on debit. A debit you owe me, personally. Every woman under my command, owes me, one hundred Natty light tabs. (beat) And I want my tabs.
