Summary
Imelda Whelehan provides an overview of popular feminist fiction from the late 1960s to the end of the 1990s, looking at how key feminist texts such as The Women's Room, Kinflicks and Fear of Flying have influenced popular contemporary works such as Bridget Jones' Diary and Sex and the City. Whelehan reconsiders the links between the politics of feminist thought, action and writing and creative writing over the past thirty years and suggests that even so-called post-feminist writing owes an enormous debt to feminism's second wave
