Subverting Patriarchal Myths: Feminism and the Female Director in Exploitation Film

My research explores the work of female directors in exploitation film, looking at the production, content, and legacy of their work and exploring the relationship between female authorship and feminist film theory. My thesis addresses the industrial context of the production of their work, alongside analysis of the content of the films they produced from a feminist perspective. My research is funded by a CADRE scholarship.

Supervisor: Professor Rachel Moseley


I completed my undergraduate degree at Coventry University in Psychology (BSc) in 2011. After working in the higher education sector for a number of years, I went on to complete a master’s degree in Culture, Communication and Media from Coventry University in 2020. My dissertation explored the relationship between female authorship and female spectatorship in The Love Witch (2016). I have previously written for Screen Queens.
