Deposit“The Liminal Space between Feminism and Misogyny: Introducing Playwright Nina Raine’s Rabbit”

In her 2006 play, Rabbit, Nina Raine tackles the ambivalence that Millennial women feel toward feminism, highlighting the entitlement of equality that Millennials both take for granted and do not actually enjoy. This article argues that Raine’s play shows how crucial feminism is for young women like the protagonist, Bella, whose liminal subjectivity threatens to undermine her efforts to self-actualize. Comparing Bella’s relationships with dominant males, her father and her ex-boyfriend Richard, this study shows how Bella’s relationships cause her to alternate between feminism and misogyny, because of the sexist attitudes of the men who have had the greatest influence on her life.
