About the Author

Cynthia Lucia has served on Cineaste's editorial board for more than two decades. She is a professor of English and the director of the Film/Media Studies Program at Rider University.


"The book asks important questions about the seemingly taken for granted quality of feminist perspectives on gender and work, about the ways in which both the codes of law and those of genre "frame" the female lawyer, and about the persistence of anxious constructions of successful women." * Cineaste *
