Andrews, D.
"Sex Is Dangerous, So Satisfy Your Wife: The Softcore Thriller in Its Contexts." Cinema Journal v. 45 no. 3 (Spring 2006) p. 59-89
"Besides its high-budget theatrical sector, the erotic thriller includes lower-profile, lower-budget, nontheatrical subgenres like the softcore thriller. This article proposes that as the softcore thriller has grown more feminized, pornographic, and consumerist over the past fifteen years, it has also become less like 1940s film noir and much less expensive." [Art Index]

Arredondo, Isabel.
"From transparent to translucid: Cuban filmmakers in 1990." (women in Cuban films)(25 Years: Anniversary Issue) Latin American Literary Review v25, n49 (Jan-June, 1997):25 (17 pages).
Women in Cuban film moved from stereotypes to individuals and from history to story by the end of the 1980s. Films by Mayra Segura, Mayra Villasis, Isabel Moreno and Rosa Leon in 'Mujer transparente' created female characters whose bodies represented female experience, rather than passive actors with identities determined by history and society. This reappropriation allowed women to become independent subjects for exploration.

Baert, Renee

An analysis of women's clothing in films, its use in the construction of woman as spectacle, and its use by feminist filmmakers in the subversion of classical cinematic forms.

"Despite Oscar's '93 salute to women, actresses face the same old obstacles." (Eye on the Oscars: Actors) Variety v361, n8 (Jan 1, 1996):53 (2 pages).
Despite progress in hiring of women directors, and the growing list of female studio executives, film actresses still do not 'carry' or headline, major films. Early in their careers they observe that appearance, not talent, is the way to employment, usually in stereotypical roles.

Bergstrom, Janet, et al.

Incl. introduction to the subject of female spectatorship and the influence of this on psychoanalytic and feminist theories, followed by four articles focusing on the topic as it affects Italy, Canada, Australia and Britain; plus the response of 59 writers to the subject.

Bernard, Andrea.
"Experiencing problems: the relationship between women's studies and feminist film theory." Women's Studies International Forum v18, n1 (Jan-Feb, 1995):61 (5 pages).
Enhanced interest among women in the US to portray their problems and societal experiences through the mass medium of cinema reflects the changing attitudes of audiences in the nation toward women's cinema. This is a marked improvement to the previously held attitudes of focusing on subject construction in dominant popular cinema, wherein women's issues were relegated to the background.

Bowman, James.
"Alien menace: Lt. Ripley is Hollywood's mythical woman - butch and ready to kill." ('Alien' films; Sigourney Weaver role) National Review v50, n1 (Jan 26, 1998):35 (2 pages).

Brashinsky, Michael.
"Deadly is the female: horror and the backlash of feminism." Films in Review v47, n1-2 (Jan-Feb, 1996):36 (2 pages).
The misogynistic tendency in the 1940s American films, portraying women as dangerous creatures out to kill people, has undergone a sea change in the 1980s and 1990s. The current American culture suffers from the irony that it is male-managed but not male-governed. Feminism has created a new breed of terrified and completely confused men, whose collective subconscious is aggressive. The best expression of this theme is seen in Roger Donaldson's 'Species.' The disaster genre of the 1950s films and the change observed in their remakes are discussed.

Brown, Jeffrey A.
"Gender and the action heroine: hardbodies and the Point of no return." Cinema Journal XXXV/3, Spring 96; p.52-71.
Considers the recent trend for placing women in the previously male position of hero in action films and whether such a simple gender transference can be upheld from a feminist point of view; focuses on the lead character in "Point of no return".

Bruno, Giuliana
"Spectatorial embodiments: anatomies of the visible and female bodyscape." Camera Obscura /28, Jan 92; p.238-261.
Considers the cinema's depiction of the body, esp. female, in relation to Siegfried Kracauer's theories of spectatorship.

Examines changing conceptions of the appropriate modes of femininity in contemporary Western culture, with particular emphasis on "An unmarried woman".

"This paper pays close attention to the serial and 'cinematic' narratives produced in the British press of the 'teens in order to display film's widening reach as a narrative mode mingling action, sentiment, and gender and to historicize debates about genre in film studies. Many filmmakers, publicists and journalists in the 1910s fully understood that melodrama was a radically hybrid form, yet they did not have the same semantic anxieties about juxtaposing multiple, non-hierarchical definitions of melodrama as later genre historians."

Champagne, John.
"Dancing queen? Feminist and gay male spectatorship in three recent films from Australia." Film Criticism v21, n3 (Spring, 1997):66 (23 pages).
Three Australian films released between 1992 and 1995 demonstrated the tension between their appeal for gay male audiences and how they portrayed women. 'Strictly Ballroom,' 'The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert,' and 'Muriel's Wedding' explored the positive aspects of gay male sexuality while tending to portray women as variously trapped and grotesque. This produces tension between politics and pleasure, but gay gynophobia can be lessened by being acknowledged.

"Mother, myth, and cinema: recent Yugoslav cinema." (Post-Communist Cinema) Film Criticism v21, n2 (Winter, 1996):40 (10 pages).
Emir Kusturica's 'Time of the Gypsies' and Srdjan Karanovic's 'Virginia' show how Yugoslav women are developing new cinematic identities. Historically, female characters in Yugoslav film have been defined by their desirability to men and their status in myths. Kusturica shows a mythically powerful woman who resolves male crises, while Karanovic links the fertility of women to the progress of civilization.

"Film roles for women in the India."
Media Report to Women v21, n1 (Wntr, 1993):7. The roles given to women in Hindi films have sustained the standard stereotypes of women as Hindi moviegoers expect them to be. Women are portrayed either as innocent characters, as sinful and penitent, as betrayed but forgiving or as long-suffering and understanding. Hindi moviegoers, most of whom belong to the lower middle class and working class, continue to believe in the image of the woman as weak and pliable. Strong women in HIndi films are often punished for their independence.

"L'imaginaire feminin au cinema. French Review v70, n2 (Dec, 1996):259 (12 pages).
A renaissance in French cinema by women has taken place in the mid-1990s. Almost two-thirds of the students admitted to French film academies are women and noted actresses such as Daniele Delorme, Isabelle Adjani and Jeanne Moreau have been active in governmental aid to French cinema. With women receiving the training and the financing to transform their creative vision into reality, this creative vision is really starting to show in French cinema. Twelve French films and Jane Campion's 'The Piano' provide the vehicles for studying this vision. The protagonists of these films are not married and they show a Medusean strength. In speaking of female silence, these films abolish such silence.

British feature films from 1945 to 1950 sought to discourage independence among women who actively participated in World War 2. Conservative family values returned to post-war England which did not tolerate feminist struggle. The film industry then was controlled by the socialand aesthetic values of producers. Films portrayed women as passive and petulant, supporting gender stereotypes and the status quo. However, one studioaddressed women as a potential market for melodrama which depicted women as respsonsible for their future.

"Construction of the female self: feminist readings of the Disney heroine." Women's Studies in Communication v19, n2 (Summer, 1996):229 (21 pages).
Walt Disney's films such as 'Cinderella,' 'Sleeping Beauty,' 'The Little Mermaid,' 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'Pocahontas,' portray the evolution of the female characters. Belle, Ariel and Pocahontas are more assertive of their rights than Cinderella and heroines of the previous films. The earlier films portray women as weak and helpless. Gradually the Disney heroine finds her voice and strength. However, the female voice makes little impression on the hegemonically patriarchal status quo. The lessons viewers garner from Disney films are ambiguous and depict the troubled arena of postfeminism.

Cinema played a crucial role in the struggle of women in the United States. The fight for the voting rights of women in the United States started in early 1890s and at that time cinema was a new visual medium to change public opinion about the aspects of women's relation to public life. A feature film made in 1913 titled 'Eighty Million Women Want-?' expressed the problems faced by the women in establishing their voting rights. The sufferings of women shown in this film were most controversial at that time.

The transendence of the identity and sexuality issues underlying Weimer films beyond the experiential audiences and their social and historical contexts was affirmed.

"A Woman's Gotta Do . . . What A Man's Gotta Do? Cross-Dressing In The Western." Signs 1997 22(3): 519-544.
Maggie Greenwald's 1993 Western The Ballad of Little Jo, in which the protagonist is an Eastern woman who disguises herself as a man and lives the life of a male frontier rancher, challenges traditional filmic representations of race and gender at the same time it problematizes assumptions film critics have made from the 1980's to the mid-1990's about how men and women view Westerns. Cross-dressing heroines have been part of Western lore since the dime novels of the 19th century, and Greenwald uses Little Jo's transvestitism to both explore the performative aspects of gender identity and, like revisionist Western historians, expand the notion of identities occupied by women on the 19th-century Western frontier. Little Jo's sexual relationship with a Chinese man revises traditional representations of Chinese in Westerns and explores the role of Chinese in the West's economy. Since the protagonist embraces life as a male frontier individualist in the film, Greenwald's work scrutinizes film critics' assumptions that female viewers are able to identify only with domestic female identities.

"Traces of the Flaneuse: from "Roman Holiday" to "Lost In Translation"" Journal of Architectural Education v. 60 no. 1 (September 2006) p. 32-42
"The writer critically assesses the trope of the 19th-century flaneur/flaneuse as found in William Wyler's Roman Holiday (1953) and Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation (2003). She states that both of these films build a traditional narrative from the adventures of a single female protagonist as she negotiates urban terrain. She suggests that in tracing the references to the flaneur/flaneuse in the films, it is possible to begin to map a trajectory of contemporary gender relations in respect to urban space from the post-World War II era to the present, as well as to comprehend the context in which the city itself is viewed as a site for such transformations."

In the early years of the film and television industry, women were often characterized as tough broads with a career and an aggressive attitude. However, television has recognized the changing role of women and has altered their portayal accordingly. The sensitivity of the television industry to women's roles can be attributed to the presence of women writers and producers in the industry. Women on television have been given more positive roles, confirming the notion that minorities will be portayed more realistically when they have achieved a degree of power behind the scenes.

"Taboo subjects distinguish films by women, film expert says." Media Report to Women v20, n3 (Summer, 1992):7 (2 pages).
Taboo subject matter and male protagonists seem to characterize films made bywomen film directors, according to a study made by a film expert. A reason cited for the choice of male protagonists may be marketability and wider choices in the future for women directors. In addition, the number of women film directors is slowly increasing. In 1940 until 1980, women directed 14 feature films whereas in 1990, 23 feature films were directed by women.

Valdivia, Angharad N.
"Stereotype or transgression? Rosie Perez in Hollywood film." (actress. Sociological Quarterly v39, n3 (Summer, 1998):393 (16 pages).
"Through a four-pronged methodology which includes textual analyses of the films, film reviews, and interviews with Rosie Perez as well as possible spectatorship positions to Rosie Perez films, the author examines the construction of Latinas in Hollywood film, especially in regard to traditional ethnic stereotypes. In addition, the author ventures into an understudied area of scholarship--namely the consideration of active audience and Latinas/Latinos. This combined methodology which examines both representation and interpretations--that is the production of meaning both at the sending and reception of popular culture--allows for a complicated reading of what Rosie Perez might mean to different segments of the audience."

Valdivia, Angharad N.
"Clueless in Hollywood: single moms in contemporary family movies." Journal of Communication Inquiry v22, n3 (July, 1998):272 (21 pages).
Family films contribute to the backlash against feminism by reinforcing the dichotomous stereotypes of divorced women and depicting female independence as destructive. The "good" single mom obeys conservative social norms, winning a desirable man. The "bad" mom does not conform to these standards, remaining single and thereby depriving her children of an appropriate male role model.

Welsch, Tricia.
"Yoked together by violence: 'Prizzi's Honor' as a generic hybrid." (Genre) Film Criticism v22, n1 (Fall, 1997):62 (12 pages).
John Huston's 'Prizzi's Honor' is a hybrid of gangster film, film noir, and screwball comedy that reflected anxiety about the power of women in the 1980s. Gangster films traditionally ignore the significance of marriage, film noir rejects it, and screwball comedy affirms marriage's regenerative possibilities. 'Prizzi's Honor' begins by following romantic comedy considerations and concludes with dominant gangster values that find the woman too threatening to absorb, forcing her husband to kill her.
