The Second Wave of Feminism emerged in the 1960s with the aim of achieving female emancipation through the eradication of deeply rooted gender inequality in a society that had its roots in patriarchal social order. At its peak in the 1970s, the movement included a popular culture in its own sphere of interest, and with it and one of the most important media films. With regard to the advertising ability of the film industry and the power it possesses, it is clear that the interest of the second wave of feminism has turned this media. Feminist theorists began to wonder about the role of the film industry in maintaining the domination of patriarchy and the established social values and norms that construct gender roles, gender stereotypes in society. Accordingly, a feminist film theory developed which, through the analysis of film material, pointed to the importance of film art in the analysis of gender research. Joining the two theories proved to be a useful bond that not only warns of the fact that the film is one of the media that proclaims and maintains patriarchal state of consciousness but can serve as a medium in the creation of instruments that allow the spread of feminist ideas with the goal of gender equality in society. Accordingly, the aim of the paper is to demonstrate how fundamental theoretical concepts and questions that the representatives of the Second Wave of Feminism are present today and how they are reflected in Croatian film art in terms of revealing the patriarchal influence on the film form and the formation of female film roles, topics that affect watchful perception of the film. The paper is divided into theoretical part and research. In the theoretical part, some of the major theoretical concepts of some of the most significant representatives of the Second Wave of Feminism and some of the fundamental concepts of some feminist theoreticians are presented. The purpose of such a concept is to show what the main issues of feminist theoreticians have spread to film theory and thus remain permanently in gender equality analyzes. The research part deals with the analysis and presentation of female characters according to selected elements of analysis that are linked to the fundamental theoretical issues of the Second Wave of Feminism in selected film material covering the period between 1970 and 2010, in which 21 film titles were analyzed. The analysis of selected film materials showed that although questions of women's equality and women's perspectives have been sparked by the Second Wave of Feminism in Croatian cinematography throughout the entire time period of analysis, the elements of patriarchality and male dominance prevail in most films.
