- The F word: power and gender in 'Thelma and Louise'
- Heller-Nicholas, Alexandra
- As one of the most popular and commercially successful feminist blockbusters of all time, 'Thelma & Louise' (Ridley Scott, 1991) provides a useful starting point from which to reflect on feminism more broadly. For art historian and critic Peggy Phelan, feminism is 'the conviction that gender has been, and continues to be, a fundamental category for the organization of culture. Moreover, the pattern of that organization usually favours men over women.'
