Hellions: Pop Cultures Rebel Women by Maria Raha

Who is the iconic rebel? Is it a character from the legacy of James Dean or Clint Eastwood, or maybe a Beat Generation writer? Is it a woman? Modern pop culture and the media have distorted the notion of rebellion. Classic male rebels appear sexy, nomadicnaturally rebelliouswhile unorthodox women are reprimanded, made to fit unrealistic roles and body images, or mocked for their decadence and self-indulgence. In order to appreciate our legacy of female rebelsand create space for future cultural iconsthe notion rebellion needs to be revaluated. From Madonna and Marilyn Monroe to the reality TV stars and hotel chain heiresses of the twenty-first century,Hellionsanalyzes the celebration of pop culture icons and its impact on notions of gender. Looking at these past examples,Hellionsexpands upon the definition of rebellion and offers a new understanding of what would be considered rebellious in the celebrity-obsessed media culture of the twenty-first century.
