Working Girls: Gender and Sexuality in Popular Cinema by Yvonne Tasker

Working Girls investigates the thematic concerns of contemporary Hollywood cinema, and its ambivalent articulation of women as both active, and defined by sexual performance, asking whether new Hollywood cinema has responded to feminism and contemporary sexual

identities. Whether analyzing the rise of films centered around female friendships, or the entrance of pop stars such as Whitney Houston and Madonna into film, Working Girls is an authoritative investigation of the presence of women both as film makers and actors in contemporary

mainstream cinema.

accessible and elegant. This book is hard to put down. This reviewer finished it with a long list of films and shows to watch or rewatch. A must for every academic and public library (Choice - 3/99)
