Bad Girls: The Media, Sex and Feminism in the 90s


Add your own review!

Overview

Australian writer Catharine Lumby gives us a controversial and exciting take on the new generation of feminists and these younger women's attitudes to the debates surrounding pornography, censorship and the media, arguing that the complaints of sexism levelled at the media by older feminists are simplistic and out of date. Far from hindering women, she contends, the mass media has played a significant role in women's emancipation. Feminist censorship is puritanical and outmoded, not recognising the ease with which today's young women engage with the media - or indeed the aplomb with which these women practise feminism and manage their sexuality. An exciting new voice in an area ripe for debate.
