Published by I.B.Tauris
An extract from Jennifer Stuller's forthcoming book, Ink-Stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors, published on 30 November 2009:

From Wonder Woman to Buffy Summers, Emma Peel to Sydney Bristow, Charlie's Angels to The Powerpuff Girls, Superwomen are more than just love interests or sidekicks who stand by their Supermen. In her new book, Stuller shows how the female hero in modern mythology has broken through the boy's club barrier of tradition and reveals the pivotal role of high-heeled crimefighters in popular culture. Featuring spies and sexuality, daddy's girls and super-mothers, this is a comprehensive, engaging and thought-provoking guide to female detectives, meta-humans and action heroines, as well as their creators, directors, performers, and consumers.
