Heroines of Film and Television : Portrayals in Popular Culture, Hardback Book

Heroines of Film and Television : Portrayals in Popular Culture Hardback

Edited by Norma Jones, Maja Bajac-Carter, Bob Batchelor


Despite the increasing variety of heroic women portrayed in film, television, and other popular culture channels, much of the understanding of heroines has been limited to females as versions of male heroes or simple stereotypes of overly weak/strong (and even violent) women.

This book analyzes the new vision of female heroes in popular culture.

It features award-winning authors from a variety of disciplines, broadening our understanding of how heroines are portrayed, as well as how these important popular culture representations both simultaneously empower and/or constrain real life women.
