about

In Smart Chicks on Screen: Representing Women's Intellect in Film and Television, Laura Mattoon D’Amore brings together an impressive array of scholarship that interrogates the portrayal of females on TV and in movies. Among the questions that the volume seeks to answer are: in what ways are women in film and television limited, or ostracized, by their intelligence? How do female roles reinforce standards of beauty, submissiveness, and silence, over intellect, problem solving, and leadership? Are there women in film and television who are intelligent without also being objectified?

The thirteen essays by international, interdisciplinary scholars offer a wide range of perspectives, examining the connections—and disconnections—between beauty and brains in film and television. Smart Chicks on Screen will be of interest not only to scholars of film and television, but women’s studies, reception studies, and cultural history, as well.
