This book focuses on the ways in which second-wave feminism has been represented in American popular culture, and on the effects that these representations have had on feminism as a political movement. Kim Loudermilk provides close readings of four best-selling novels and their film adaptations. According to Loudermilk, each of these novels contains explicitly feminist characters and themes, yet each presents a curiously ambivalent picture of feminism; these texts at once take feminism seriously and subtly undercut its most central tenets. This book argues that these texts create a kind of qfictional feminismq that recuperates feminism's radical potential, thereby lessening the threat it presents to the status quo.This book argues that these texts create a kind of aquot;fictional feminismaquot; that recuperates feminisma#39;s radical potential, thereby lessening the threat it presents to the status quo.
