Bad Women
Book Description:

Bad Women takes us back to this time of massive social, cultural, and economic change to show us how American cinema gave women and women’s sexuality images useful to the new consumer culture of the early 1900s and its exploitation of sexual pleasure. Rich in historical detail and theoretical insight, this book offers an original depiction of a culture in transition, a sexual sensibility in the making, and film’s participation in the change.
