After a historical study of the representation of women in the road movie genre, this article focuses on the analysis of the role of women in a representative US American Road Movie of the 90s, Ridley Scott's Thelma and Louise (1991). A contrastive analysis between the 'foundational road movie': Dennis Hopper's Easy Rider (1969) and Ridley Scott's road feature is carried out in an attempt to understand the evolution from a traditionally male genre to the appearance of female Road Movies like Thelma and Louise, that is, of road narratives presenting women as the only protagonists. The study of this sample female Road Movie focuses, first of all, on its generic traits, secondly on the analysis of gender and sexual relationships as depicted by Ridley Scott, to go on to conclude that the road is no longer an exclusively male domain. 1.
