Women in westerns

CAN ANYBODY COMMENT ON THE REPRESENTATION OF WOMEN IN THE REVISIONIST WESTERNS? (FROM 1990+)

I think women in westerns have always taken a secondary role, i would be grateful to hear some different views, as this will help my critical research study, in media studies :slight_smile:

i am sorry, but this was not specific enough to the revisionist western, 1990+.
i could not find a forum dedicated to this type,
so just posted in general to get some feedback. again, it would be much appreciated.

titles i am looking at are:

  • The quick and the dead
  • Wyatt Earp
  • The Newton Boys
  • Bad Girls
    all of which i thought were varied in the representation of women.

Yeah, I think I’ll open a topic for women in thirties westerns… See where I’m getting at?
And I’ll sign up again to do it. Or aren’t you the same guy?
Besides that, if you want something from other people, the least can you do is introduce yourself.

All those westerns offer a quite diverse picture of women.

Well, I’m not a moderator. But opening several topics on this matter is nonsensical. This type of thing will clutter the forum. Far too many topics are being opened anyway.
On this particular matter: This guy is lazy and only wants some (to quote him) “long answers”.
And the abundance of CAPITALS I could do without too.

I don’t know if a forum is the right source for a study like that anyway…
