Dear Naomi Wolf

I read your piece on female rivalry in Harper's Bazaar where you wrote about how "there are so few treatments onscreen of major female rivalry (direct rivalry rather than a love triangle). Indeed, I could think of only one since The Women in 1939: Single White Female."

Here's a little help in finding other movies: Heathers, All about Eve, Mean Girls, The Devil wears Prada, The hand that rocks the cradle, In her shoes and any movie starring Barbie, Ariel, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella. Snow White would work too, but I think it was made before The Women, so won't hold that against you.

Ps. Isn't there a love triangle in SWF?
Ps 2. I'm sure people here can come up with even more titles.

  1. 'The Business of Strangers', and 'You Again', that new, somewhat drossy-looking one with Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver, off the top of my head...

  2. Excellent suggestions.

    I can't stand Naomi Wolfe.
