BITCHES, FIERCE FEMMES AND MOLLS – IN PRAISE OF DIFFICULT SCREEN WOMEN

Conference Hall 1, Level 2

Unlikeable, dark, self-destructive, brilliant. Authentic mavericks, TV is redesigning woman, subverting sexual politics, re-writing the patriarchy powerplay. We look at what makes these anti-heroes compulsive viewing with those that helped create them. “The point is, women have spent so many years girl-powering ourselves – to the point of almost parodic encouragement we’ve left no room to acknowledge our dark side. Dark sides are important. They should be nurtured like nasty black orchids.” Gillian Flynn
