DW: Some actresses' roles have not only mirrored specific social relations, but have even directly influenced them. In which ways did the now 47-year-old Oscar winner Renée Zellweger reshape the image of women through Bridget Jones? Sibylle Stürmer: I believe Renée Zellweger established a new image of women with the popular Bridget Jones series. It had a broad outreach. Many women went to the theater with their girlfriends to enjoy a nice evening and have a good laugh. It allowed them to make fun of certain aspects of their own life.

She is successful in her professional life; … [Read more...] about Imperfect women steal the screen: Bridget Jones, Thelma, Louise, Lola and other emancipatory milestones
