Me Jane: Masculinity, Movies, and Women

Front Cover
Pat Kirkham, Janet Thumim
St. Martin's Press, 1995 - Performing Arts - 296 pages
In original studies ranging from the Western to melodrama our contributors see masculinity marked as delicate, fragile, provisional; it is under threat, in danger of collapse, an impossible ideal. These signs of the masculine in films are recognised by women viewers who are subject to patriarchal masculinity in their own feminine formation but not subject to it in the sense that to be male is never their goal.
