Hunting Girls

Sexual Violence from The Hunger Games to Campus Rape

2016 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Women's Studies (Adult Nonfiction)

In Hunting Girls, Kelly Oliver examines popular culture’s fixation on representing young women as predators and prey and the implication that violence—especially sexual violence—is an inevitable, perhaps even celebrated, part of a woman’s maturity. Oliver examines such films as Kick-Ass (2010), The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011), and Maleficent (2014).
