THE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT OF JULIE IN ‘THE SAPPHIRES’ HOOK If you had the opportunity to travel and sing with all the veterans in vietnam even though it endangers your own safety would you? Well Julie and her sisters did and they overcame all the challenges and as Aboriginal women. CHARACTER BACKGROUND Julie is oppressed for most of her life. She is mistreated in every aspect and has had a tough upbringing, fighting with her sisters a lot. She struggles with being the underdog of her peers, and has to fight to make a name for herself. She does this through realising her true potential as an artist and singer, and makes everyone hear that she has the loudest voice. Throughout her life, being an Aboriginal woman of colour, she faces a lot of prejudice as do most of the women of colour throughout the film. They are treated this way by the write Australians as racism was common in the social climate. She is even told she cannot go with her sisters and pursue the Sapphires because she was too young and was caring for her child. Despite all of her hardships, Julie was still motivated to pursue her dreams and follow her passions. So she left with them anyways not caring what anyone else would think.
