    There were obvious difficulties for the female FBI agent while she was attending the in-service training course and after that when she was in the prison for an interview and that precise difficulties were because exactly of her sex. A man would not be exposed such attitudes. Besides those scenes, there was an incident regarding a kidnapped young woman. That was also clearly a case about those difficulties.

    watch the movie! women do succeed in the mens world in this movie and that could be your arguement. They make serial killers weak!

    Jodie Foster is an FBI agent trying to profile a serial killer and save a girl’s life(she’s been kidnapped and they are trying to find her before he kills her). She asks Hannibal Lecter for help in profiling the killer because since he is one, he should be able to identify with one. The Silence of the Lambs title comes from Hannibal taunting her about witnessing the lambs being slaughtered when she was a child. Anyways, Hannibal gives some insight and clues and in the end they find the killer(who liked to dress up in his lady skin suit made from victim’s) and I believe he is killed and the girl is saved. She survived longer than the others because she jerked his dog into the well where she was being held and basically holds it hostage)
