Historical Significance of Mulan — Regardless of Disney

This article explores the social and historical background surrounding the film rather than the film itself. A separate review on the actual Disney plus rendition will be linked. The story of Mulan has a momentous significance to many who identify as Asian across the entire global diaspora. The legend of Hua Mulan is almost 1500 years old (500AD!), and is a powerful story of how a young woman risks her life in order to save her father’s. In the course of her journey, she ultimately becomes a young woman who also saves her emperor and her country — in a system that subverts her very existence and identity. She suffers through the internal agony of hiding her identity, the physical pain of concealing her gender, the physical demands of performing with and against men much stronger than her, the embarrassment of living undercover, and the risk of facing shame, exile, and execution because of her very existence. This is the ultimate story of personal sacrifice, female empowerment, personal integrity, internal fortitude, duty to family, service to country, and personal identity. The story of Mulan has guided and inspired women and men around the world for more than a millennia. https://medium.com/incluvie/why-disneys-mulan-is-so-powerful-and-why-so-many-people-like-to-hate-on-it-580926cf7a01
