By J. Aragon VINE VOICE on January 6, 2009
Format: Paperback
I read this book last month and relished every page. Lisa Jervis has encapsulated key points about feminism and pop culture in a readable, interesting new book. The book is well written and she did her research. Given that she's a self professed pop culture junkie, it doesn't seem like the research was too painful.

The great thing about this book: the information and the tone. She's a great writer and presents the information in such a way that most readers won'te want to put the book down. The audience for this book is wide, since the lay audience will enjoy it. Likewise, I can see using it in my intro to women's studies courses. I've already suggested the book to others, as well.

Interesting read, definitely not what I expected. I was prepared to be flamingly pissed off the whole time but that was not the case. Written with humor which helps to diffuse the parts that do piss you off. All around a good read for anyone wishing to understand the relationship between feminism and pop culture.

I first discovered this book as a result of the recent protests at Mizzou. A professor did not support First Amendment rights and many people criticized her actions. Some of these actions included criticizing her based on her class on Women and the Media. I thought the class sounded interesting so I did some research and found out this is the book required for the class. Since I have a B.A. in Women's Studies, I thought this book would be interesting. I was right, this is a great book!

This book was a great page turner and discussed women's role in the media since the beginning of advertisements. She discussed the Rosie the Riveter campaign during World War II to get women to work, and the subsequent campaign after the war to implore women to return to their "household duties." Let's face it, media is ubiquitous so it is absolutely important that we study the effects of it on our lives. Women are disproportionately affected by the media. Women in the 1950's were represented as the dutiful housewife (Mrs. Cleaver, etc.) When women tried to move outside of their roles it never worked well, (think about every time Lucy Ricardo tried something other than housework!). When American television was introduced to Samoa, there became a larger increase of eating disorders in the population.

Overall this is a great book, and I highly recommend it! I only wish the book had been longer!

I used this book for a class on Gender and Popular Culture, and it was a great supplement and super interesting. I've kept it because I enjoyed it so much and learned a lot about our culture. I would recommend it even just for a casual read.

I liked this book, it would make a good book for an undergraduate starting on women's studies and the media.

Good, I am using it for a Pop Culture lesson. Good addition as a piece of reference material for pleasure reading but good for the purpose for which I purchased it.

A great survey but I would have loved another 300 pages or so.
Definitely a fine introduction to this field.
