It depends on how one interprets the movie...

...especially when you consider we weren't hit over the head by what the director's intentions actually were, according to her. There was really nothing about adult admiration of girls in the film except for that one lampoon-ish scene where the girls took advantage of the hysteria by threatening an adult theater usher who was trying to push them out for sneaking in without paying. Amy's mother and her older auntie certainly had the sentiment you mentioned, but they were Muslims, and so hardly feminists. All authoritarians of either the Right or Left seem to hate the sexual expression of young girls.

And it's majorly ironic that many who saw the advertising for the film in America insisted Netflix was "promoting" pedophilia with the movie, and have continued on that line since it actually started streaming. A lot of ambiguity of interpretation surrounds this film.
