"Enlightened Sexism: The Seductive Message that Feminism's Work Is Done."

Host Kathleen Stephenson speaks with Susan Douglas about her new book, "Enlightened Sexism: The Seductive Message that Feminism's Work Is Done." Douglas exposes popular images of women in the media as mere fantasies of female power, assuring women and girls that the battle for equality has been won, so there’s nothing wrong with resurrecting sexist stereotypes—all in good fun, of course. She shows that these portrayals not only distract us from the real-world challenges facing women today but also drive a wedge between baby-boom women and their “millennial” daughters.

Comments

Timber Beasts

I've read the book twice and rather hoped to hear the program that the author spoke on the book. But that page was not available on your site. Anyway, I loved the book. I thought it was an exciting dose of history. Stoner brought the Portland of  1900 to life. There was intrigue that kept my interest throughout the book.

I was washing eggs at the farm when this came on. I loved it and looked for it to share with my peeps!
