Description

Taking on the bombshell spies, slayers, witches and assassins who are fighting their way into movies and television shows everywhere, Girls Who Bite Back examines what these new role models for young women are really about.

With rich insight as well as wry irreverence, Girls Who Bite Back cuts through the layers of the new "female power," questioning its corporate origins and investigating issues of race and sexual orientation. From Little Orphan Annie to Kill Bill, Girls Who Bite Back shows how far we've come and how far we have to go.
