Reviews

""Nicely written and accessible." -- Kathy Merlock Jackson, editor of Walt Disney: Conversations" --


""You've Come a Long Way, Baby brings together a wide array of interesting essays that examine images of women and feminism in popular culture today. The volume makes a much-needed critical contribution to the developing literature of third-wave feminism." -- R. Claire Snyder, author of Gay Marriage and Democracy: Equality for All " --


""You've Come A Long Way, Baby shows us that feminist criticism can break down and understand texts with humor and insight -- and in that sense, we really have come a long way." -- Kenyon College Alumni Bulletin" --


""While theoretical and historical analysis aligns this book well with advanced undergraduate and graduate work, consideration of popular culture and current trends creates ample interest for general readers." -- Social and Behavioral Sciences" --


""Some of the articles are down-to-earth, some are down-and-dirty. Some are matter-of-fact, others deliberately argumentative in tone. The book itself is a treasury." -- Lincoln County News" --


""Offers fresh insights into the role of feminism in America."-- Paintsville Herald" --
