Abstract
Katherine J. Lehman's Those Girls: Single Women in Sixties and Seventies Popular Culture explores the ways that unmarried women were portrayed in TV shows and movies of the era and relates those portrayals to the period's quickly changing attitudes toward female sexuality and independence. Lehman's thought-provoking original research shows how Hollywood and 1960s and 1970s public opinion worked symbiotically to expand female roles while also binding women to traditional images.
