Neo-Feminist Cinema examines how Hollywood has responded to women's changing social roles. Radner pays particular attention to how the contemporary woman's film portrays what some have called postfeminism and what the author redefines as neo-feminism, represented by figures such as Helen Gurley Brown-women for whom work was a necessity, rather than a right or even a privilege. Popular films explored include He's Just Not That Into You, The Devil Wears Prada, Bride Wars, Sex and the City, and many more.
