Summary:
Looking at popular culture from 1980 to the present, feminism appears to be ""over"": that is, according to popular critics we are in an era of ""postfeminism"" in which feminism has supposedly already achieved equality for women. Not so, says Sarah Projansky. In Watching Rape , Projansky undermines this complacent view in her fascinating and thorough analysis of depictions of rape in U.S. film, television, and independent video. Through a cultural studies analysis of such films as Thelma and Louise , Daughters of the Dust , and She's Gotta Have It , and television shows like ER , Ally McBeal
