Buffy the Vampire Slayer gave contemporary TV viewers an exhilarating alternative to the tired cultural trope of a hapless, attractive blonde woman victimized by a murderous male villain. With its strong, capable heroine; quippy, witty dialogue; and a creator (Joss Whedon) who identifies himself as a feminist, the cult show became one of the most widely analyzed texts of contemporary popular culture.This book reveals the ways in which Buffy reconfigures the ideals of second-wave American feminism for a broadly conceived third-wave audience. It also explores the ways in which the final season's vision of collective feminist activism transcends racial and class boundaries. I'm Buffy and You're History will foster fresh debate within the fields of Buffy studies, gender studies and popular culture studies.
