The Birds: Why Do the Birds Attack?

Alfred Hitchcock’s horror 1963 The Birds, never gives us an explanation as to why these birds attack. However, ScreenPrism notes that birds is a slang for women and one can interpret the film as a commentary on gender roles and women’s behavior. ScreenPrism analyzes how the “birds” are really an allegory for women in society.
