Elle Woods a perfect example of a Future Female Leader. I’d argue she’s a conservative woman who knows what she wants and will do everything in her power to achieve her goals. Throughout both Legally Blonde movies, we see Elle show her political beliefs in big and small ways. Let’s break it down.
Elle uses grassroots lobbying to have her beloved Bruiser’s Bill passed
She did her research, reached out to members of Congress with dogs, and used their beloved pets to show them how important Bruiser’s Bill was.
Elle uses facts to back up her claims
Miss Woods uses her knowledge of cosmetology and exercise science when fighting for Brooke, her beloved fitness instructor in court. Because she used facts instead of relying on emotions to back up her claims, Elle wins the case and Brooke is set free.
Elle worked for her acceptance to Harvard
Instead of relying on connections or her rich family, Elle skipped out on her sorority’s parties to study for the LSAT, landing her a seat at Harvard and a near perfect test score.
Elle was a president for the people
In the many sorority house scenes, it’s evident that Elle worked hard to be elected to her position. She truly cares about her sisters and strives to make Delta Nu the strongest sorority on campus.
Elle believes in limited government
After they realize that the toilet paper has been replaced to a generic brand behind their back, Elle leads her sorority sisters in a vote to bring Charmin toilet paper back to their house. She believes that the maintenance staff should not have a say in something they are not involved in, living in the Delta Nu house.
Elle proves her worth to get elected
Instead of writing an essay, Elle chooses to make an application video full of what she knows and asks for the admissions team to “elect her” to be a part of the class of 2004.
