Oprah Winfrey and Feminist Identification
This chapter uses Patricia Misciagno’s theory of de facto feminism as a framework to explore Oprah Winfrey’s feminist identification, and shows that while claiming to be the anthemic Everywoman, Winfrey does not claim a feminist identity for herself or for her talk show. She does, however, occupy the position of the premier de facto feminist: “Oprah promotes feminist ideology and practice without explicitly acknowledging the fact that she is endorsing either feminism or the United States women’s movement.”
