Abstract:My inquiry revolves around three case studies of American celebrity-fitness and celebrity-feminist icons constituted during 1980s and 1990s America: actress Jane Fonda, infomercial queen Susan Powter, and talk show host Oprah Winfrey. I point to the troubling effects of the articulations between feminism and fitness and examine the contemporary American therapeutic cultures of recovery and renewal and what has come to constitute empowerment in the American postfeminist era.
