Thelma & Louise and Women in Hollywood (McFarland & Co. Publishers, 2007, 423 pgs.) by Gina Fournier examines the working conditions for women in Hollywood films, on screen and behind the scenes, in the last decade of the 20th century, as seen through the lens of one of the all time greatest films starring women.

In 1991, the film Thelma & Louise and its fiery reception said a lot about attitudes and practices toward gender.
