Product description

Review

"A highly nuanced, jargon-free discussion of the nature, role and place of gender in Buffy. Anyone who thinks Buffy is "post-feminist," "feminist," or just a silly television show needs to read this book." -- James B. South, editor of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Philosophy

National Women s Studies Association Journal, Summer 2006""

Ultimately, Jowett s analysis of the genres and gendered negotiations of Buffy provide both a useful introduction to gender analysis of popular culture artifacts and a commentary on femininities and masculinities in post-feminist society. Because Jowett includes an introduction to the terminology of gender studies and grounds her analysis in the specific events and characters of the show, her book would make a good resource for undergraduate courses in gender studies or pop culture analysis, provided the book is paired with clips from the television show (all seven seasons are currently available on VHS and DVD). Terri A. Fredrick, National Women s Studies Association Journal, Summer 2006"
