The Feminist, the Housewife, and the Soap Opera traces the history of the feminist engagement with soap opera using a wide range of sources from programme publicity to interviews with key soap opera scholars. The book reveals that feminist scholarship on soap opera was a significant site of which the identity 'feminist intellectual' was produced in dialogue with her imagined other, the soap opera watching housewife. The book integrates personal autobiographical accounts within a broader history which traces both the move from 'women's liberation' to 'Feminism', and the acceptance of soap opera as a serious object of study.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Brunsdon's excellent book should be required reading for humanities and social-science-based scholars of daytime television serials and for anyone interested in the development of feminist theory and criticism from the 1970s to the present. * R.R. Warhol, CHOICE, Nov.00, Vol.38, No.3. *
the book is an example of post-second-wave feminist self-consciousness at its consciousness-raising best. * R.R. Warhol, CHOICE, Nov.00, Vol.38, No.3. *
