OverthinkingIt.com – “Coming Through the Fog, Your Sons and Daughters”

I know we’re supposed to be focusing on comments rather than posts, but I really wanted to share this!

Overthinkingit is a website that, according to its tagline, ” subjects the popular culture to a level of scrutiny it probably doesn’t deserve.” They often discuss the social and critical implications of media, occasionally comparing it to more academic or high culture concepts (I swear, they mention Paradise Lost in an article at least once a week).

It just so happens that they recently released an article about the anti-feminist, non-progressive attitude that can be decoded in the movie Working Girl, and the author of the article focuses specifically on the relationship between women in the workforce. It even compares the movie to 9 to 5, too. In addition to being a great read, it’s a really interesting coincidence in light of what we discussed in class today.
