An Investigation of the Characterization in Bridget Jones’s Diary from a Feminist Perspective

Abstract [en]

This essay investigates Bridget Jones’s Diary, a novel written by Helen Fielding, from a feminist perspective with an emphasis on gender. The focus lies on Bridget’s characterization and how it can be perceived as problematic from a feminist point of view. On the surface, Bridget seems like a true feminist, but when reading into and analyzing her characterization, one can see that she rejects many of the key ideas within feminism. The study also investigates how one might work with Bridget Jones’s Diary in the secondary EFL classroom.
