Feminist Flashback #22

For this week's Feminist Flashback, something decidedly sexist and exploitative, and yet one of my favorite B movies of all time: Barbarella, from 1968, starring Jane Fonda.



Sometimes it's hard for me to explain the contradictions in my feminist psyche. In this case, I don't have anything to say in my defense...

we, too, derive power from the system... even from places that require us to acknowledge the contradictions we come by simply from being members of a culture.

I live for contradictions. And I can't stop loving Barbarella, no matter how hard I try.
