Abstract:As a set of organizing beliefs and codes that operate to structure cultural messages, this logic sets the terms and boundaries of the ways in which public, political women are discussed; thus, it exerts considerable influence on democratic processes. In this study I both analyze postfeminism and address issues of its production; specifically, I make recommendations for the amelioration of a reliance on postfeminist beliefs at the level of cultural production.
