ADDITIONAL INFORMATION


Abstract: »Also looking at recent films, Jenny Platz reconsiders the way Lifetime is depicting rape in her essay "Subversion of the Final Girl in Rape Revenge Narratives and the Normalization of Violence Against Women in The Tenth Circle and The Assault." Looking at the way that Lifetime challenges more conventional rape revenge narratives, Platz notes that it also reinforces many realities of rape culture along the way. Simultaneously, the network rethinks how women can be rape and sexual assault victims, but solidifies their victimhood.« (Emily L.
