Addressing recent key offerings in contemporary cinema as well as in critical race and sexuality studies, postcolonial theory, and cultural studies, Susan Fraiman carefully demonstrates how women and femininity are implicitly derogated even in the most consciously progressive cultural work. Motivated by a time-honored ethic of left self-critique rather than simple iconoclasm, Fraiman engages emblematic figures in various fields in order to suggest that sexism continues to implicate us all, and that we all must accordingly recommit ourselves to combating sexism.
