S1E4: 1950s morality and the pregnant 'juvenile delinquent'
In today's episode, we explore a film called Blue Denim, made in 1959. In the 1950s, the censorship code was altered to allow for more frank discussions of abortion; but just how explicit could they be? We also focus on the figure of the pregnant 'juvenile delinquent' and how the marriage plot is designed to turn her into a 'good' respectable girl again.

Why has it been so taboo to show the pregnant body onscreen at certain points in history? What does this taboo suggest about cultural attitudes towards women's bodies? And were films able to manipulate the censorship system to include "objectionable" material? Find out in this episode! ... Follow us on Instagram @teenscreenfem ...
