Editorial Reviews


At long last, heres an informative volume that pays attention to women as participants in a heavily regulated industry, not just as images on a screen. -- B. Ruby Rich, University of California, Berkeley, author of Chick Flicks: Theories and Memories of the Feminist Film Movement

I highly recommend Christina Lane's fascinating study of six women directors who have made the transition from 'counter cinema' to mainstream Hollywood while retaining their personal and feminist concerns. -- Molly Haskell, film critic, author From Reverence to Rape: The Treatment of Women in the Movies

Book Description

Feminist Hollywood examines the differences between commercial cinema and counter cinema by focusing on the work of contemporary women directors who have entered Hollywood from the realm of independent filmmaking.
