Abstract (2. Language): 
This article discusses the potential of resistance within the popular through an analysis of Mad Max Fury Road from a feminist critical perspective. In order to do this, the paper focuses on genre and action films as a part of a particular narrative and provides a feminist criticism through the themes of femininity and body, leadership/collective. Acknowledging the relationship between the text and context, the paper demonstrates how the film diverges from the generic conventions through providing popular examples from feminist media studies and a discussion of postfeminism.
Abstract (Original Language): 
Bu makale, Mad Max Fury Road'un analizi yoluyla popüler olanın içinde direniş imkânını feminist/eleştirel bir perspektiften tartışıyor. Bunu yapabilmek için tür sineması ve aksiyon türünü tartışarak aksiyon türünü belli bir anlatı kapsamında değerlendiriyor ve incelenen filmdeki kadınlık ve beden, liderlik/kolektivite temaları üzerinden feminist bir eleştiri gerçekleştiriyor. Bunu metin ve bağlam ilişkisini göz önünde bulundurarak, incelenen filmin türün uylaşımlarına benzeşmediği noktalara değinerek, feminist medya çalışmalarına konu olmuş popüler örneklerle ilişki kurarak ve postfeminizm tartışması aracılığıyla yapıyor.
