Editorial Reviews


"Nicely written and accessible."―Kathy Merlock Jackson, editor of Walt Disney: Conversations"

"You've Come a Long Way, Baby brings together a wide array of interesting essays that examine images of women and feminism in popular culture today. The volume makes a much-needed critical contribution to the developing literature of third-wave feminism."―R. Claire Snyder, author of Gay Marriage and Democracy: Equality for All"

"You've Come A Long Way, Baby shows us that feminist criticism can break down and understand texts with humor and insight―and in that sense, we really have come a long way." ―Kenyon College Alumni Bulletin"

"While theoretical and historical analysis aligns this book well with advanced undergraduate and graduate work, consideration of popular culture and current trends creates ample interest for general readers." ―Social and Behavioral Sciences"

"Some of the articles are down-to-earth, some are down-and-dirty. Some are matter-of-fact, others deliberately argumentative in tone. The book itself is a treasury." ―Lincoln County News"

"Offers fresh insights into the role of feminism in America."―Paintsville Herald"

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book has many interesting articles on Popular Culture and the representation of women. It gives a good introduction to third wave feminism in contrast to second wave, and covers some of the common criticisms of both views. While most of the articles attempt to present a positive light or progress in the way in which women are represented in media today, the reader must keep in mind that the topic is pop culture and should not be "too" demanding in her expectations. The book does provide a lot of "food for thought" and could instigate some good discussion. It is well worth reading.
