dc.description.abstractPopular culture is taken as an indicator of shared values, and feminism in popular culture is examined through the framework of a successful television show. Following a brief historical analysis of feminist movements and discourse, as well as an overview of television shows depicting feminist themes, the author examines current examples of Third Wave feminism in popular magazines. From this examination of popular magazines, the author constructs seven descriptive categories that are representative of “pop feminism.” These categories are applied to an analysis of the television show “Sex and the City.” The show is found to incorporate elements of all seven categories within the sample studied. The author concludes that “Sex and the City” is a legitimate Third Wave feminist voice that positively influences the lives of women.en
