Scheiner uses films and fan behavior as windows to decode the cultural meanings of female adolescence from 1920 to 1950 and beyond. In film, adolescent girls have been represented as powerful, subversive, problematic, or in opposition to the parent culture. Girls, in turn, have often used the same tropes to create social identity and to affirm cultural authority.
