Vom Verlag:

Women on Screen makes a timely intervention into critical debates about the representation of feminist and feminine identities in contemporary visual culture. Bringing together the latest research from a range of international scholars, the essays in this collection interrogate how and why certain formulations of feminism and femininity are currently prevalent in mainstream cinema and television. Through a lively engagement with recent feminist theory, this volume offers compelling new insights into a variety of postfeminist media phenomena, from chick flicks and reality shows to independent cinema and quality drama. In doing so, it asks important questions about the relationship between feminism, femininity, and visual culture: How has the legacy of second wave feminism been negotiated on screen? To what extent are contemporary portrayals of women informed by anxieties about femininity? What is the role of feminist theory in analyzing and shaping representations of female identity in the twenty-first century?
