The Indian woman, Dr. Anandi Gopal Joshi, was the first Indian woman to earn a degree in Western medicine, and also believed to be the first Hindu woman to set foot on American soil.
The Japanese woman, Dr. Kei Okami, was the first Japanese woman to obtain a degree in Western Medicine.
The Syrian woman is Dr. Sabat Islambooly.  Her name is spelled incorrectly on that photograph. 
For those interested, here’s more information on other women of color who attended and graduated from Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia in the past, with a focus on the Japanese-American women they accepted during the US WW2 internment of Japanese-Americans.

Easily the most horrifying line of dialogue I’ve ever heard in an animated movie.

NO BUT THIS WAS SUCH A GOOD GODDAMN MOVIE LIKE THE MUSIC IS FUN AND SUPERB THE CHARACTERS WERE REAL PEOPLE EVEN THE ANTAGONISTS THE WOMEN WERE GREAT IT WAS ALL GREAT. IT DOESNT MATTER IF YOURE JEWISH, CHRISTIAN, MUSLIM, ATHEIST, WHATEVER ELSE IT DOESNT MATTER ITS SUCH A GOOD MOVIE AND ITS LITERALLY ONLY 90 MINUTES OF YOUR DAY AND EXPERIENCE THIS HERE JUST CLICK IT LITERALLY IT WILL OPEN IN A NEW TAB GO WATCH. 

also can we point out that none of the characters were white? like damn accurate depictions of Biblical characters

whispers this is one of my all time favourite movies

I adore this movie.  ADORE IT.  And the above scene is a perfect example of one of the main distinctions this movie has amongst all movies, but particularly amongst animated movies: the bad guys are not mustachio-twirling villains who do evil shit because they love being evil or generically want power.  They actually bothered to develop each of the major characters and explore their motivations and how their actions evolved out of their personalities and their experiences.  It would have been super easy to take the narrative from Exodus and make the pharoah Generic Evil Dude, but they went beyond that and explored the relationship between the father and his sons, Ramses and Moses, and how those intersecting family relationships impacted both men’s actions as adults.  Pharaoh’s dialogue there is terrifying not just because he did a bad thing; but because it’s clear from his words and his face that he genuinely believes that he was acting out of what he thought was the best interest of his family and his kingdom.  That’s how you build a human villain- they have motivations that are complicated but sympathetic, and then they take it to a place where you’re like, “Wow, that is super not okay.” 

Plus this scene resonates because it recognizes that it’s not even the infanticide which is the ultimate source of the evil here (although infanticide is pretty bad), but rather the dehumanization of an entire race of people that allowed Pharoah and his soldiers to justify the infanticide to themselves so they could perform it.  Like, congratulations Dreamworks, you totally boiled down genocide for the under-twelves.

Then you have Ramses, who is just a hot mess of daddy issues, and they do a great job of showing the way he and Moses are torn up about how they’re being forced into these opposing roles.  It’s not that they don’t have agency, because they do, but you get the sense of how circumstances are shaping them into men who are representative of two diametrically opposed cultures and agendas.  Ramses is a villain, but more because he feels he is standing in his father’s sandals and has to take up the villainy that his father worked his way into than because he has any particularly villainous motivations. 

Then, in addition to the character development and general craft, the animation and music are absolutely stunning.  The plagues are given impressive weight not by 5-star special effects (as would have been tried if this was a live action film) but by the way they are set up and reacted to by the characters.  The slaying of the firstborn is not graphic at all but it is legitimately terrifying. 

Bottom line, everything about this film is amazing and if you haven’t seen it sometime over the past 15 years, you are missing out.

ITA about this movie, its ethnically accurate character design, and its music.

WHY IS ELEMENTARY NOT TUMBLR’S FAVORITE SHOW

Because unfortunately while Tumblr tries to talk a good game about diversity and inclusiveness, fandom is in actuality sort of shit about liking things where they can’t just be writing about two white dudes touching dicks?

OH SNAP
