Description

**AStylistBook Club pick** In a time when women are under constant attack, I am so grateful for Anne Helen Petersens sharp and topical book. Petersen nails the magnetism of women who break boundaries and the punishment that often comes along with it. All women will see a bit of themselves in the unruly Jessica Valenti, New York Times-bestselling author ofSex ObjectYou know the type: the woman who wont shut up, who flaunts it, whos too brazen, too opinionated too much. Sometimes, shes the life of the party, others, shes the focus of gossip. Shes the unruly woman, and shes one of the most provocative, powerful forms of womanhood today. The unruly woman has been around for as long as there have been boundaries of what constitutes acceptable feminine behaviour that is, for ever but these days she is more visible and less easily dismissed than ever before. InToo Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud, cultural critic andBuzzfeed writer Anne Helen Petersen explores unruliness through the lens of elevenpop culture powerhouses, including Serena Williams, Melissa McCarthy, Nicki Minaj, Madonna, Kim Kardashian, Hillary Clinton, Caitlyn Jenner and Lena Dunham. Petersen examines why our culture loves to love and berate these controversial figures for being too something: too queer, too strong, too naked, too old, too shrill,too much. This is anincisive, candid, conversation startinganalysis of the part influential women play in redefining contemporary femininity.An oasis in a world of hot takes, a set of crisp essays on the provocateurs who fascinate and enrage us. With warmth and wit, Anne Helen Petersen celebrates the power of being just a little too much, seeking the rebel inside the trainwreck Emily Nussbaum, New Yorkercritic Raucous and smart . . . Because these criticisms are, writ large, the same ones flung daily at non-celeb women, the book is a timely and essential read USElleAnne Helen Petersens gloriously bumptious, brash ode to nonconforming women suits the needs of this dark moment . . .
