On Movies, History, and Women  

With humor and honesty, Girls on Film looks at the good, the bad, and the unfairly written women in film. A celebration of the power of cinema and the hidden messages within media and culture, this collection of personal essays explores the women who inspired and confused a young film enthusiast.

A movie freak with a feminist message. In the tradition of feminist authors, film reporter Alicia Malone brings a collection of personal essays looking at the representation and impact of women on film. In addition to personal anecdotes and analysis, Girls on Film weaves in interviews from a diverse group of well-known women working in cinema today.

For fans of Trick Mirror and film books. A blend of women’s history books and film reviews, each chapter of Girls on Film looks at a female character representative of a stereotype or trope. As she explores hidden histories, Alicia connects these tropes to her very own journey in film.

In this authentic approach to film theory, you’ll find essays on:

  • The dumb blonde
  • The Cinderella transformation
  • The femme fatale

A follow-up to Backwards and in Heels and The Female Gaze, Girls on Film is the final book in Alicia’s women in cinema trilogy.
