Growing up a Bond Girl

Fantastic video essay by Deborah Lipp:

I am a woman, a feminist, and a hardcore James Bond fan; I’ve even written a book on the Bond movies. But when I meet fellow fans, they are often startled that a woman is among them. When I tell feminists that I am a Bond fan, their shock is as great, and often accompanied by disgust. In either case, I’m subtly, or not-so-subtly, being told that James Bond is not meant for me.

There’s a transcript available, but the video is worth watching, too.
