Alongside conservative visions of submissive domesticity, Meyerowitz demonstrates how there also existed many representations of women as independent, creative and non-conformist.

Here, she profiles the output of lesbian production company SIR, as well as their key titles including Sugar High Glitter City (Shar Rednour and Jackie Strano (2001)), which are notable for their adaption of classic dykesploitation conventions for contemporary lesbian audiences. From shifting authorial voice-over narration from male to female agency and updating documentary and photography to include a dominating lesbian gaze, as well as expanding the repertoire of same-sex scenarios beyond the 1960s cycle, Hines reads these films as very much co-opting rather than rejecting the limitations of the heterosexually defined soft-core films of the 1960s.
