"Knope We Can!" Primetime Feminist Strategies in NBC's "Parks and Recreation"

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The current inquiry addresses how popular television in the form of the NBC comedy series "Parks and Recreation" (2009- ), actively incorporates feminist ideology. Using textual analysis, the author describes four strategies by which the series' text forwards feminism: the show’s presentation of Pawnee, Indiana as obsolete patriarchy, the central motif of feminism in individual episodes which illustrate how the personal is political, the appearance of noticeable and notable mentions of feminists, and feminism visualized. Through the strategic placement and presentation of visual text, in the form of feminist icons and symbols, and verbal text, in the form of dialogue, this 30-minute sitcom promotes an “everyday” feminism that normalizes the idea that feminists are everyday people.
