What is the relationship between feminism and popular culture? Has there been a "backlash" against feminism, or is feminism incorporated into the mainstream? Can feminism learn from popular culture? This book explores these questions through a diverse range of texts and sites, including: Bridget Jones, African-American music videos, news coverage, radio shows, the Scream trilogy, Sex and the City, hip hop, and more. The book does not assume that popular culture could benefit from a feminist "makeover," instead, it analyzes how different meanings of feminism have been negotiated within popular culture and how popular culture has made sense of feminism.
