Post a Comment. In "Post Feminism and Popular Culture" Feminist Media Studies 4, feminist cultural researcher Angela McRobbie argues that popular culture during the 9o's is characterized by a set back from the achievements of the feminist movement. For McRobbie, contemporary popular culture expresses what has been termed "post feminism". When relating to post feminism in the context of popular culture McRobbie denies the view on post feminism as a conservative reaction to the achievements of feminism. For McRobbie, post feminism as it is expressed in popular culture relies on the achievements of feminism. Post feminism views these achievements as socially and culturally "obvious".

The term postfeminism alternatively rendered as post-feminism is used to describe reactions against contradictions and absences in feminism , especially second-wave feminism and third-wave feminism. The term postfeminism is sometimes confused with subsequent feminisms such as 4th wave-feminism , and "women of color feminism" e. The ideology of postfeminism is recognized by its contrast with prevailing or preceding feminism. Some forms of postfeminism strive towards the next stage in gender-related progress, and as such is often conceived as in favor of a society that is no longer defined by gender binary and gender roles. Postfeminism can be considered a critical way of understanding the changed relations between feminism, popular culture and femininity. Postfeminism may also present a critique of second-wave feminism or third-wave feminism by questioning their binary thinking and essentialism, their vision of sexuality, and their perception of relationships between femininity and feminism. It may also complicate or even deny entirely the notion that absolute gender equality is necessary, desirable or realistically achievable.
