This review is from: Overloaded: Popular Culture and the Future of Feminism (Paperback)
I bought this book purely for my dissertation on female role models. It did help in its own way, and it got quite interestingtowards the end, but after the entertaining beginning, I found it a bit hard going and seeing as I wouldn't describe myself as afeminist, I got a bit fed up of having it constantly rammed down my throat. Nevertheless, it is a very educational book, but there was a whole chapter on politics, which i did read, although I must admit I find politics a bit boring and having it in this book made it worse. If you are going to but a book like this, then I can't recommend any others and it goves a true portrayal on the rise of feminism and females, but please check that it is actually what you want to read about.

sounds like this reader 'cant be bothered' with more complicated or political ideas. thats a pity if you are writing about women as the idea of a 'woman' IS a political idea!! it cant be fully understood just looking at personalised individualised 'role-modelling'.
