Reading Contemporary "Bad Girls": The Transgressions and Triumphs of Madonna's "What It Feels Like For a Girl"
AbstractThrough an analysis of Madonna's "What it Feels Like for a Girl," I problematize the impulse to dismiss women who transgress boundaries and challenge gender norms in spite of their complicity within systems of power and privilege. Résumé Par l’entremise d’une analyse de la chanson de Madonna ‘ What it Feels Like for a Girl ‘, je problématise l’impulsion qu’on a de ne pas tenir compte des femmes qui transgressent les limites et défient les normes assignées à chacun des sexes en dépit de leur complicité à l’intérieur de systèmes de pouvoir et de privilèges.
