Abstract

Feminism is defined in so many ways that it clearly has long grown well beyond the scope of gender. As a global cultural feminist, I seek to highlight the ways that films and texts disrupt, challenge, and overturn the norms of race, gender, age, sexuality, and class. In Disruptive Feminisms: Raced, Gendered, and Classed Bodies in Film, I seek to shed light on the many ways that feminism lurks in unexpected places. I have always been interested in exploring less obvious feminist disruptions found in a wide variety of classical, postmodern, and postcolonial international films. The films and filmmakers who are not so obviously read as feminist or Marxist seem to find their way onto my radar.
