"Hilarious...[Nugent] documents her journey to feminism while skewering misogynist tropes and delivering some painful truths." –Publishers Weekly (starred review) “Feminist” is not a four-letter word, but Alida Nugent resisted it for a long time. She feared the “scarlet F” being thrust upon her for refusing to laugh at misogynistic jokes at parties; she withered under the judgmental gaze of store clerks when buying Plan B, and she swore that she was “not like other girls.” But eventually, like so many of us, she discovered that feminism is an empowering identity to take on. It’s okay to criticize beauty standards but still love dark lipstick, investing in female friendships is the most rewarding thing ever, and no one should feel pressured to eat an “unseasoned chicken breast the size of a deck of playing cards” as every sad dinner for the rest of eternity. With sincerity, intelligence, and wit, Nugent invites readers in to her most private moments of personal growth. From struggling with an eating disorder for most of her teen years to embracing all aspects of her biracial identity, she tackles tough topics with honest vulnerability. Smartly-written, unapologetic, and laugh-out-loud funny, You Don’t Have to Like Me is perfect for readers of Roxane Gay, Rebecca Skolnit, and Sloane Crosley. From the Trade Paperback edition.

This book offers an original contribution to the exploration of consumer labour in digital media. It locates Marxist Feminist interpretations of domestic work at the centre of this discussion, providing a richer framework for understanding digital media economics. The argument critiques existing theories about the exploitative and alienating effects of the commercialisation of those user activities that serve as unpaid content production and valuable audience data. It applies feminist perspectives on domestic work to the interpretation of this activity, thereby conceptualising it in ways that enable consumer labour to be almost simultaneously exploited and socially meaningful. It is illustrated throughout with varied examples of contemporary digital media practices, focussing primarily on social media sites and their uses.

Feminists, Feminisms, and Advertising provides feminist analyses of the historical relationships between the advertising industry and the women’s movement in the United States. Contributors consider the ways that advertisers encode race, ethnicity, gender, and heteronormativity into advertising practices and messages exported around the world. They further explore the ways that intersectional audiences such as women of color, Latinas, and lesbian and gay audiences decode, reinterpret, resist, and subvert advertising. With this book, the editors and contributors address the present lack of feminist scholarship, research, knowledge, or curriculum in advertising, and begin a more honest dialogue about diversity and intersectional gender in the advertising academy as well as the advertising industry.

Are girls taking over the world? It would appear so, based on magazine covers, news headlines, and popular books touting girls’ academic success. Girls are said to outperform boys in high school exams, university entrance and graduation rates, and professional certification. As a result, many in Western society assume that girls no longer need support. But in spite of the messages of post-feminism and neoliberal individualism that tell girls they can have it all, the reality is far more complicated. Smart Girls investigates how academically successful girls deal with stress, the “supergirl” drive for perfection, race and class issues, and the sexism that is still present in schools. Describing girls’ varied everyday experiences, including negotiations of traditional gender norms, Shauna Pomerantz and Rebecca Raby show how teachers, administrators, parents, and media commentators can help smart girls thrive while working toward straight As and a bright future.

In eighteen essays, including a prose poem, Judy Juanita's essay collection excavates the path an East Oakland girl forged over several tumultuous eras to become a novelist, playwright and poet, the de facto feminism that is an intrinsic part of the black struggle and the black community, the equally defiant entrepreneurship in the black community, often in the guise of kitchen beauticians, hair braiders and the Candy Lady in the projects, her own romance with The Gun and violence, her years as a Black Panther Party member and civil rights activist, her history as a domestic in New Jersey and a comic in California. She tops off this buffet with a lengthy, postmodern, spiritual essay written in epistolary form.

'Pink is my favourite colour. I used to say my favourite colour was black to be cool, but it is pink ? all shades of pink. If I have an accessory, it is probably pink. I read Vogue, and I?m not doing it ironically, though it might seem that way. I once live-tweeted the September issue.' In these funny and insightful essays, Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman (Sweet Valley High) of colour (The Help) while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years (Girls, Django in Chains) and commenting on the state of feminism today (abortion, Chris Brown). The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly insightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society, but also one of our culture. Bad Feminist is a sharp, funny and sincere look at the ways in which the culture we consume becomes who we are, and an inspiring call-to-arms of all the ways we still need to do better.
