Abstract

This research explores the evolution of feminist themes from Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew" to its cinematic adaptation, "10 Things I Hate About You." While the original play lacks explicit feminist elements, the film, influenced by third-wave feminism, introduces empowered female characters challenging traditional gender norms. Examining character dynamics, relationship structures, and feminist critiques, the study sheds light on how cinematic reinterpretations can infuse new dimensions into classic works, impacting broader conversations on gender and feminism.
