Summary
Presents a collection of original essays that examines the state of feminism in North America and Western Europe. It focuses on a range of cultural and political contexts to interrogate the apathy toward, erasure of, and interventions in feminist discourse and analysis from popular and political culture. In providing a scholarly critique of feminism's erasure from various social and political contexts, including news media, popular culture, labor, motherhood, and feminist activism, this collection makes visible the systematic marginalization of women and women's rights in contemporary culture
