Sammanfattning: This essay is a study of the relation between femininity and violence, in relation to the maincharacter, in the subgenre rape/revenge. I study this phenomenon – through an analysis of the maincharacter in Truffaut's movie The Bride Wore Black – and I make use of two different feministtheories : the « classic » feminism of Simone de Beauvoir, and post-feminism, as it is developed byJeffrey Brown. Through examination of scenes of the film, where the interaction between violenceand femininity is manifest, I attempt to understand how the formula of the genre has been altered.Thus, I determine which effects that are entailed by this modification concerning e.g. the story aswell as the perception of the main character and her violent acts. I show how the coexistance ofviolence and femininity may entail new effects in relation to the comprehension of the maincharacter, and how the relation between femininity and violence can be understood by two differentfeminist theories, something which may contribute to the understanding of, not only this particularfilm, but also the genre of rape/revenge.
