Reviews

"Shani Orgad and Rosalind Gill's brilliant study of the intersections within and between 'confidence culture' and neoliberal capitalism makes a vital contribution to how we think about gender, the body, and media. Complicating analyses on both the media representation and the user applications of the contemporary confidence movement, this crucially important book will appeal to media studies, American studies, and feminist scholars as well as a wide public audience."--Sarah Banet-Weiser, author of "Empowered: Popular Feminism and Popular Misogyny"
"Confidence Culture offers critical feminist insight into the conditions shaping our existence, experiences and our feelings. . . . An absolute necessity for scholars of gender, media studies, sociology and other interdisciplinary areas."--Ipsita Pradhan "LSE Review of Books" (2/8/2023 12:00:00 AM)
"Recommended. Advanced undergraduates through faculty; professionals."--M. M. Ferree "Choice" (12/1/2022 12:00:00 AM)
