Abstract

In Pam Cook’s influential discussion of the woman’s film, she poses the question:

… why does the women’s picture exist? There is no such thing as ‘the men’s picture’, specifically addressed to men; there is only ‘cinema’ and ‘the women’s picture,’ a subgroup or category specifically designed for more than half the population, relegating them to the margins of cinema proper. (Cook, 1983: 17)
