trailer break: ‘Sex and the City 2’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

In my The Week in Women column this weekend, I despaired that Naomi Wolf had chosen Sex and the City’s protagonist Carrie Bradshaw as an icon of the just-ended decade… a positive icon! a feminist icon!

And then I see this trailer.

This is feminist? Carrie looks happiest here while contemplating her overstuffed walk-in closet. The rest of the trailer is all high fashion, exotic travel, and making out with rich men in limousines. If these women have anything on their minds other than clothes, men, babies, and money, I’m not seeing it here.

This may be fantasy, but it ain’t feminist fantasy.

Sex and the City 2 opens in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. on May 28.
