Reviews

"An empowering perspective on female identity, delivered in a thoughtful and thought-provoking way. Feminist literature at its best." --Annelies Hofmeyr, creator of "Trophy Wife Barbie"

"Wright sets herself apart as a philosopher willing to engage with all aspects of a woman's identity--not just the physical and political, but also the spiritual--and in so doing, to offer women a richer understanding of the forces that impact the construction of the self." --Danielle Tumminio Hansen, Emory University

"Athena to Barbie achieves something rare and admirable: it engages well-known archetypes in a fresh way that illuminates women's agency, identity, and lived experience." --Heidi Bostic, Marquette University
