Summary
  • "Media expansion into the digital realm and the continuing segregation of users into niches has led to a proliferation of cultural products targeted to and consumed by women. Though often dismissed as frivolous or excessively emotional, feminized culture in reality offers compelling insights into the American experience of the early twenty-first century. Elana Levine brings together writings from feminist critics that chart the current terrain of feminized pop cultural production. Analyzing everything from Fifty Shades of Grey to Pinterest to pregnancy apps, contributors examine the economic, technological, representational, and experiential dimensions of products and phenomena that speak to, and about, the feminine. As these essays show, the imperative of productivity currently permeating feminized pop culture has created a generation of texts that speak as much to women's roles as public and private workers as to an impulse for fantasy or escape. Incisive and compelling, Cupcakes, Pinterest, and Ladyporn sheds new light on contemporary women's engagement with an array of media forms in the context of postfeminist culture and neoliberalism."--Provided by publisher
  • "Levine has assembled a comprehensive set of smart, accessible, and interesting essays that truly capture fèminized' popular culture in the early twenty-first century United States. This will be the definitive volume on pòst-feminist' popular cultural productions for some time to come."--Rebecca Wanzo
  • Author of The Suffering Will Not Be Televised: African American Women and Sentimental Political Storytelling
  • "Cupcakes, Pinterest, and Ladyporn offers a concise, engaged, and fascinating set of analyses on things feminine, female, and feminist in the context of popular media culture. If you've ever wondered how new media forms like Twitter and Facebook have bigger implications for gender relations, this book is for you."--Brenda R. Weber
  • Author of Makeover TV: Selfhood, Citizenship, and Celebrity
  • "In a provocative return to a topic dominant in early feminist media and cultural studies, Cupcakes, Pinterest, and Ladyporn helps us to understand better the pleasures and politics of feminine popular culture at a time when its creators and consumers are negotiating both feminist and postfeminist sensibilities."--Mary Celeste Kearney
