Abstract

The 'new gothic' film and television text addressed to a largely female audience such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Twilight and True Blood, has become an important genre for the staging and testing out of ideas about adolesent femininity, sexuality and power. This essay explores the extent to which such texts can be seen as 'post-feminist' and considers the different kinds of boundaries involved.
