with Dr. Phillip Guerty

4 months ago

The "Bond Girl" has been an archetype, showing up in every James Bond novel and movie in the franchise's almost 70 years of history. In the 1950s and 1960s, these women fit a certain stereotype, they were the love interests of Bond and had names such as Pussy Galore or Holly Goodhead, reflecting the sexual revolution taking place at the time. But as time goes on and the feminist movement picks up steam, the "Bond Girl" role begins to change. In this podcast, Marie speaks with Dr. Phillip Guerty, Associate Professor of History at the University of North Georgia and lifelong Bond fan, about what the "Bond Girls" can tell us about the sexual revolution and the feminist movement in the late 20th century.
