about

Buffy the Vampire Slayer gave contemporary TV viewers an alternative to the tired cultural trope of a hapless, attractive blonde woman victimized by a murderous male villain. With its strong, capable heroine, witty dialogue, and a creator Joss Whedon, who identifies himself as a feminist, the cult show became one of the most widely analysed texts in contemporary popular culture. The last episode, broadcast in 2003, did not herald the passing of a fleeting phenomenon: Buffy is a media presence still, active on DVD and the Internet, and studied internationally. 'I'm Buffy and You're History' puts the series under the microscope, investigating its gender and feminist politics. In this book, Patricia Pender argues that Buffy includes diverse elements of elements of feminism and reconfigures - and sometimes revives - the ideals of American second wave feminism.
