Feminism Through Cinema and Literature Introduction.

Feminism can be defined as the doctrine aimed at establishing and defending a state of equal social, political and economic rights for women. Over the past century, the feminist movement has determined many social factors surrounding the role and power of women.

Feminist Cinema, inspired by the development of the feminist film theory of the late 60’s and 70’s, concerns the illustration of feminist perspectives and analysis of cinema’s construction of women. Furthermore, within literature, feminism aims to re-evaluate the contribution women provide to society, creating interest in female writing as well as fictional heroines.

This blog celebrates the most influential feminist icons throughout the history of cinema and literature. Enjoy, and please feel free to leave a comment.

About Feminism Through Cinema and Literature

Hi, its Tia. From Cambridge, England. Avid reader, film watcher and feminist. Studying for an undergraduate degree in English Literature at York St John University. The tone of my blog has hopefully developed into a more literary and critical analysis of female roles in cinema and literature. This is a development that I hope to continue as I progress with my studies. Hope you enjoy my blog and do feel free to leave a comment.
