Female representatives from the visual, written, and performing arts ponder the meanings of postfeminism in their professional and personal lives. Crossley and Joyce interviewed the participants and integrated their comments into a simulated discussion of postfeminism. This forum reveals the inherent polarity in the debate - a disillusionment with feminism's proclaimed idealism and productivity, and a reluctance to view feminism in a "post" phase.
