In this thoroughly witty, incisive look at the role of women on page and screen, Susan Isaacs argues that assertive, ethical women characters are losing ground to wounded, shallow sisters who are driven by what she calls the articles of winpette philosophy. Although female roles today include lawyers like Ally Mc Beal and CEOs like Ronnie of Veronica's Closet, they are winpettes nonetheless. A brave dame, on the other hand, is a dignified, three-dimensional hero who may care about men, home, and hearth, but also cares - and acts - passionately about something in the world beyond. Brave dames' stories tange from mundane to romantic to fantastic, but whatever they do, they care about justice and carry themselves with self-respect and decency. For a really brave dame, think Frances McDormand as the tenacious, pregant police chief in Fargo.
