Abstract:

This study exposes the representation of developmental empowerment in Charmed and accesses how audiences synthesize this representation as relevant to their own experience. To do so, the study employs a dual methodology, performing a narrative reading and investigating audiences responses to Charmed. The process of developmental empowerment, defined as empowerment based on cumulative knowledge and experience, is linked to third-wave feminist discourse. Audience responses recognized this process of empowerment, but also identified two key disempowering elements in the text that surface as consequences of empowerment. Ultimately, implications of the intersection of empowerment, disempowerment, third-wave feminism and witchcraft are explored.
