    The problem with books that are centered around things the author doesn t like, is that you don t know what the author s idea of good is This book was very negative, and I don t honestly know what Powers idea of good feminism looks like, other than that it includes French porn from the early 1900s as well as less consumerism A few things really bothered me about these short essays The first was that the author really goes on about how today s mainstream feminists are all about choice fe The problem with books that are centered around things the author doesn t like, is that you don t know what the author s idea of good is This book was very negative, and I don t honestly know what Powers idea of good feminism looks like, other than that it includes French porn from the early 1900s as well as less consumerism A few things really bothered me about these short essays Th...

    This book is just a long rant, without a central point It s also outdated in content thought if you ve been in American academia dealing with gender queer theory cultural studies.

    This book contains quite a few gems, but is mired in academic jargon I don t agree with some of what she said, but muchI never fully understood I was often unclear on her position is she making fun of this lauding it , and at other times I felt her irrelevant biases were all too cl...

    Power covers a lot of ground in a very short space Her criticism seeks to argue for a re emergence of Marxist feminism and I believe she manages to make a strong case, by pinning some damning notes on a few transversals of feminist use values For instance, marking a loci on Sarah Palin, Power is able to illustrate how simple feminist representations can be staged to lend credence to retrograde ideologies Or how admittance into the work place has lead to a deepening of survelliance and a spr Power covers a lot of ground in a very short space Her criticism seeks to argue for a re emergence of Marxist feminism and I believe she manages to make a strong case, by pinning some damning notes on a few transversals of feminist use values For instance, marking a loci on Sarah Palin, Power is able to illustrate how simple feminist representations can be staged to lend credence to retrograde ideologies Or how admittance into the work place has lead to a deepening of survelliance and a spread of intrusion into the personal lives of employees by management all objectification under the guise of feminist success Her most damning critique, though, is leveled at the...

    This is a very short but definitely interesting book Now, personally I think Power did choose an easy target shiny feminism pink, shopping, dildos empowerment equality is so shallow that one does not need to be the brightest bulb to see how it really has nothing to do with female empowerment, independence or equal rights Now I say this should be very obvious but the flocking crowds at sex and the city franchises prove me completely wrong But this is also why this book is ver This is a very short but definitely interesting book Now, personally I think Power did choose an easy target shiny feminism pink, shopping, dildos empowerment equality is so shallow that one does not need to be the brightest bulb to see how it really has nothing to do with female empowerment, independence or equal rights Now I say this should be very obvious but the flocking...
