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
Fascinating ... makes an important contribution to feminist television studies and women's studies, particularly in its examination of the formation of the feminist intellectual and the changes in her position of 'worrying responsibly' about her imagined other. * Years Work in Critical Cultural Theory *
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. * CHOICE *
