Complicated Women - 2866524327

Complicated Women Griffin Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Between 1929 and 1934, women in American cinema took lovers, had babies out of wedlock, got rid of cheating husbands, enjoyed their sexuality, and led unapologetic careers. Before then, women on screen had come in two varieties -- sweet ingenue or vamp. Then two stars came along and blasted away those stereotypes. Greta Garbo turned the femme fatale into a woman whose capacity for love and sacrifice made all other human emotions seem pale. Meanwhile, Norma Shearer succeeded in taking the ingenue to a place she'd never been: the bedroom.These complicated women paved the way for a deluge of indelible stars -- Marlene Dietrich, Jean Harlow, and Mae West, to name a few. Then, in 1934, the draconian Production Code became law in Hollywood, and these women were banished, not to be seen again for three decades.

Framing Female Lawyers University of Texas Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

As real women increasingly entered the professions from the 1970s onward, their cinematic counterparts followed suit. Women lawyers, in particular, were the protagonists of many Hollywood films of the Reagan-Bush era, serving as a kind of shorthand reference any time a script needed a powerful career woman. Yet a close viewing of these films reveals contradictions and anxieties that belie the films' apparent acceptance of women's professional roles. In film after film, the woman lawyer herself effectively ends up 'on trial' for violating norms of femininity and patriarchal authority. In this book, Cynthia Lucia offers a sustained analysis of women lawyer films as a genre and as a site where other genres including film noir, maternal melodrama, thrillers, action romance, and romantic comedy intersect. She traces Hollywood representations of female lawyers through close readings of films from the 1949 Adam's Rib through films of the 1980s and 1990s, including "Jagged Edge", "The Accused", and "The Client", among others. She also examines several key male lawyer films and two independent films, Lizzie Borden's "Love Crimes" and Susan Streitfeld's "Female Perversions".Lucia convincingly demonstrates that making movies about women lawyers and the law provides unusually fertile ground for exploring patriarchy in crisis. This, she argues, is the cultural stimulus that prompts filmmakers to create stories about powerful women that simultaneously question and undermine women's right to wield authority.

"Blowtorch of a novel ...matchless and prescient."--Publishers Weekly "Spokesman for those who were angry and beat ...turbulent, temperamental, and tortured."--The New York Times "A self-taught writer with an uncanny gift for narrative and dialogue ...a born rebel and troublemaker of immense charm."--Roman Polanski In this novel of breathtaking tension and sweltering love, two desperate friends on the edge of the law--one of them tough and gutsy, the other small and scared--travel to the southern Israeli city of Eilat to find work.

Emerging Lesbian The University of Chicago Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In early 20th-century China, age-old traditions of homosocial and homoerotic relationships between women suddenly became an issue of widespread public concern. Discussed formerly in terms of friendship and sisterhood, these relations came to be associated with feminism, on the one hand, and psychobiological perversion, on the other - a radical shift whose origins have long been unclear. In this first ever book-length study of Chinese lesbians, Tze-lan D. Sang convincingly ties the debate over female same-sex love in China to the emergence of Chinese modernity. As women's participation in social, economic and political affairs grew, Sang argues, so too did the social significance of their romantic and sexual relations. Focusing especially on literature by or about women-preferring women, Sang traces the history of female same-sex relations in China from the late imperial period (1600-1911) through the Republiican era (1912-1949). She ends by examining the reemergence of public debate on lesbians in China after Mao and in Taiwan after martial law, including the important roles played by globalization and identity politics.
