Female Chauvinist Pigs
Women and the Rise of Raunch CultureBook - 2006
Meet the female chauvinist pig -- the new brand of "empowered woman" who embraces "raunch culture" wherever she finds it. In her groundbreaking book, New York magazine writer Ariel Levy argues that, if male chauvinist pigs of years past thought of women as pieces of meat, female chauvinist pigs of today are doing them one better, making sex objects of other women -- and of themselves. Irresistibly witty and wickedly intelligent, Female chauvinist pigs makes the case that the rise of raunch does not represent how far women have come; it only proves how far they have left to go.
