Through the exploration of women in film and women on film, Thelma and Louise shows how feminism impacted the film industry by challenging Hollywood and the social patriarchy, providing women a voice, and changing how spectators view how women are looked at through women’s eyes and their experiences. Before being able to analyze the role the feminist movement plays in the image of women in the film Thelma and Louise, it is necessary to understand the history of the feminist second wave and the role of women in the film industry from the 1920’s forward.
