Abstract

There is no doubt that Hamilton has sparked a ‘cultural conversation’ (Monteiro, A, 2016:90). However, Michael Schulman sees Hamilton as ‘almost’ feminist (Schulman, 2016), so, as female characters plead to be ‘part of the narrative’ (Miranda, 2015) this article seeks to unpick, and explore their representation within Hamilton, so as to establish the extent to which show’s progressive label extends to gender representation, or reinforces regressive stereotypes and tropes.
