Product Overview

Do women in classical Hollywood cinema ever truly speak for themselves? Amy Lawrence examines women's voices in eight classic films to show how their speech is repeatedly constructed as a 'problem, ' an affront to male authority. This book expands feminist studies of the filmic representation of women by adding voice to the agenda, enabling us to see these classics in new ways and to ask new questions of other films.
