Title of Project: Lesbian Media & The Male Gaze: A Close Analysis of Web Series FÉMININ/FÉMININ

Inspiration Behind the Project:

Lesbian web-series FÉMININ/FÉMININ confronts the male gaze by embodying what Mulvey envisioned as alternative media, a “politically and aesthetically avant-garde cinema” (Mulvey 2). By surveying lesbian media as it operates within the mainstream patriarchal framework, this thesis hopes to reveal ways to alternatively navigate the patriarchal narrative power structure.
