Abstract

"Feminism and Popular Culture: Investigating the Postfeminist Mystique." Rebecca Munford and Melanie Waters. September 2013. I.B. Tauris. --- Is feminism undead? Feminism and Popular Culture seeks to map 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 daughters who roam the postfeminist landscape. Through recourse to these figures, they attept to illuminate postfeminism’s obsessive resuscitation of seemingly outdated models of femininity and ask why these should today be gilded with new appeal. Jade Montserrat recommends the book to pop culture fans and scholars alike.
