Feminism and Popular Culture: Investigating the Postfeminist Mystique

by Rebecca Munford and Melanie Waters - £17.99  I.B.Tauris & Co Ltd (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781850438953 | ISBN 10: 1850438951

Feminism and Popular Culture maps the fraught and often unpredictable relationship between popular culture, feminism and postfeminism. From the shadowy city spaces of Mad Men and Homeland to the dystopic suburbia of The Stepford Wives and American Horror Story, the authors trace the maniacal career women, hysterical housewives and amnesiac girls who roam the postfeminist landscape.
 
Through recourse to these figures, they are able to illuminate postfeminism's obsessive resuscitation of seemingly anachronistic models of femininity and ask why these should today be gilded with new appeal. Analysing postfeminism's historical slippages and haunted temporalities, the book both takes account of the complex ways in which popular culture negotiates ongoing debates within and about feminism, and explores its implications for feminism's future.
