From Desperately Seeking Susan, Steel Magnolias, and Thelma & Louise to Desert Hearts, Girl Friends, and Passion Fish, mainstream cinema has seen a wave of films focusing on friendships between women. In tire Company of Women is the first critical work to investigate the recent resurgence of this variety of the "woman's film". Examining the female friendship film since the 1970s and setting it against older films of the 1930s and 1940s, such as Mildred Pierce and Stella Dallas, Karen Hollinger studies the character of the films themselves and how they speak to female viewers. She argues that while many of these films initially seem to affirm the power of female friendship and reject traditional images of women, most of them ultimately fall back on conventional feminine roles. Hollinger argues that the female friendship film, by attempting to assimilate into the mainstream, uses ideas from the women's movement, like female autonomy and sisterhood, that are particularly susceptible to compromise. It is this blend of empowering and conservative elements that makes the female friendship film neither a true challenge to the status quo nor a mere confirmation of dominant ideology but rather a multifaceted cinematic form that reflects both of these strains. Hollinger considers all of the major issues in feminist film criticism -- from audience reception to the identification with characters, from sexuality to racial identity. Engaging and provocative, In the Company of Women is an entertaining and enlightening account of one of contemporary cinema's most vital genres.

Mary Gordon’s extraordinary novel about a young Catholic woman who pursues father figures—only to wrestle to break free of them Felicitas Maria Taylor was brought up in a cocoon, raised by five devoutly religious women. The death of her father while she was still a baby has caused her to seek out the extreme in men, and that is what she finds in Father Cyprian, a priest whom Felicitas visits during summers in upstate New York. The charismatic Cyprian fosters the young girl’s gifts and intelligence, but, no lover of worldly things, he demands a severe loyalty. When Felicitas comes of age and begins her studies at Columbia, everything seems poised to change. At the university, she falls under the spell of another domineering man—a professor surrounded by young activist acolytes—and this time, the stakes couldn’t be higher. The Company of Women is a story of dangerous attachments and challenged faith—and of finding an endurable future.

Seeking to reveal the movement's humanity and diversity, activists Bonnie Watkins and Nina Rothchild recorded the accounts of homemakers and business owners, explorers and artists, factory workers and spiritual seekers, scientists and secretaries, prostitutes and policewomen. Encountering this company of women will change the way readers understand the movement that has transformed American life from the 1960s to the present. "Like all good art, these stories start from a particular place and become universal. Women in all parts of the country--and in many other countries--will find themselves here. In the Company of Women affirms the importance of every woman's story. It affirms the power of hearing our own and each other's words unfiltered by interpretation. . . . We need this book and more like it." -- from the Foreword by Gloria Steinem
