    The interplay between the film Working Girl (1988) and American cultural and social tensions of the late 1980’s is expressed in the film’s mise en scène and story lines. The narrative takes place in the competitive, back biting world of Wall Street in the late 1980’s during a time when women still struggled for equality and were more often than not seen as sexual objects.
