This paper analyzes the feminist geography of "Thelma and Louise" as it relates to the open roads of the southwest United States. The paper discusses how the two female main characters of this film embark on a journey to escape the sexist patriarchal values they encounter in a small rural town. The paper shows how by addressing the reversal of gender roles in Louise's murder of a rapist, the language of the law drove these two women to take justice in their own hands.
