We can talk and argue about feminism in cinema for ever and a day. The unrealistic and masculine images of feminists in the Soviet cinema of the thirties, the naïve and exaggerated feminists in American cinema or the "silly" suffragettes who were fighting for "something of their own" — the reality of masculine feminism of the beginning of cinema.
However, feminism penetrated into cinema, albeit slowly, but very steadily. It introduced not just fresh new images, but whole theories and terms. This is the whole terminology of feminist film theory that we are going to talk about today.
