The female as represented in western popular culture has been a timeless yet culturally unstable image, construed and contested by men and women alike. Red Light is an anthology of essays, stories and visual materials that identifies and deconstructs female icons, past and present, and re-imagines them for the 21st century. Alternately fiery, sexy, angry and eloquent, the works in this book cast these powerful, conflicted women in the (red) light of a new day. Icons found in these book include: Wonder Woman, the Virgin Mary, Jayne Mansfield, the Avon Lady and many more.
