Applying a broad range of theory to film, this work highlights and explains feminist issues, with analyses.

Ann Kaplan and bell hooks. Other chapters examine the issues of reproduction, pornography and the gaze, autobiography and literary theory, postmodernism, black feminism and "the personal is political" in relation to a variety of mainstream and independent films, including "Klute", "Dead Ringers", "A Question of Silence", "Orlando" and "Daughters of the Dust".
