My name is Emily Chandler, and I study the representation of girlhood in film and television. On this blog, my goal is to highlight diverse, lesser-known and noteworthy films about girlhood, and to explore the pleasures and possibilities of girl culture. What do I mean by diverse, lesser-known and noteworthy?
- I examine a diverse variety of films, including films outside of the Hollywood film industry, films not in English, films in multiple genres and films made in a range of time periods.
- I highlight lesser-known films, which may not have been widely released or featured on recommendation lists.
- I aim to cover noteworthy films, which had a significant cultural impact and/or represent girls in striking ways.
