The articles reproduced in this book all suggest how the production culture of television engages, constrains, and challenges postfeminism. What happens when postfeminism and “after feminism” have to come up against these powerful compulsions of the entertainment industry? That is the issue these articles address. We offer these pieces as some of the best examples of current feminist television studies.
