There is much potential, both politically and theoretically, in monitoring the confluences of feminism and popular culture. While much attention has been granted to Madonna and the Spice Girls, there are textual sites that have a far longer, and more complex, history. This article analyses Miss Moneypenny, a character in the long-running James Bond series. Through monitoring the superspy's super-secretary, we discover the contradictory, ambivalent, and surprising impact of feminism on this small but resonant site in filmic history.
