Female Chauvinist Pigs: Women and the Rise of Raunch Culture
If male chauvinist pigs of years past thought of women as pieces of meat, female chauvinist pigs today are doing them one better, making sex objects of other women - and themselves. With a wink and a nudge, they are welcoming back strippers, porn stars and Playboy Bunnies as the heroes of post-feminist culture. In Female Chauvinist Pigs, Ariel Levy asks the question: what's in it for us women? Terrifically witty and wickedly intelligent, this book stands firmly in the tradition of Susan Faludi's Backlash and Naomi Wolf's The Beauty Myth.
