"Female adventure serials in newspapers, magazines and film, for and about working-class women, became immensely popular from the early 1910s to the early 1920s. These serials, which recounted stories of working-class women who prevailed over adversities and earned promotion and respect, were the fulfillment of working-class women's innermost desire for dignity, respect and power. That working-class women identified with these heroines is proven by the serials' popularity." [Expanded Academic Index]
