In the present issue of Popular Inquiry on the topic “Popular Culture and Feminism” we aim to offer our readers a collection of original articles dealing with a wide range of experiences and practices that characterizes the universe of popular culture today. The specific focus of the present volume concerns the question of the relation between popular culture and feminist is-sues, and especially the question as to whether popular culture can contribute to the critique and the overcoming of male chauvinist and antifeminist prejudices, stereotypes and negative situa-tions that are sadly still very present in our time. On this basis, we have encouraged our authors to seek original perspectives on the broad topic of popular culture and feminism. In planning this issue of Popular Inquiry, we were interested in articles that could address this topic in in-novative ways, including both historical and theoretical approaches. We have thus invited au-thors from various research fields to submit articles related to (but not limited) questions and issues such as: the role that popular culture played in disseminating feminist ideas also beyond feminist organizations and activism; the place of feminist theories within contemporary popular culture; what can feminist theory learn from popular culture and vice-versa; how feminism transformed popular culture form the 1960s until today and vice-versa; the different ways in which feminist theories have engaged with popular culture; the concept of popular feminism as an expression of the wider circulation of feminist ideas across the popular culture; the question of domestic femininities in contemporary popular culture; the modern portrayals of gender in popular culture; the figures of girl, female teenager, young woman and old woman in popular culture; the image of feminist activists in popular culture.

Abstract

In the present issue of Popular Inquiry on the topic “Popular Culture and Feminism” we aim to offer our readers a collection of original articles dealing with a wide range of experiences and practices that characterizes the universe of popular culture today. The specific focus of the present volume concerns the question of the relation between popular culture and feminist is-sues, and especially the question as to whether popular culture can contribute to the critique and the overcoming of male chauvinist and antifeminist prejudices, stereotypes and negative situa-tions that are sadly still very present in our time. On this basis, we have encouraged our authors to seek original perspectives on the broad topic of popular culture and feminism. In planning this issue of Popular Inquiry, we were interested in articles that could address this topic in in-novative ways, including both historical and theoretical approaches. We have thus invited au-thors from various research fields to submit articles related to (but not limited) questions and issues such as: the role that popular culture played in disseminating feminist ideas also beyond feminist organizations and activism; the place of feminist theories within contemporary popular culture; what can feminist theory learn from popular culture and vice-versa; how feminism transformed popular culture form the 1960s until today and vice-versa; the different ways in which feminist theories have engaged with popular culture; the concept of popular feminism as an expression of the wider circulation of feminist ideas across the popular culture; the question of domestic femininities in contemporary popular culture; the modern portrayals of gender in popular culture; the figures of girl, female teenager, young woman and old woman in popular culture; the image of feminist activists in popular culture.
