Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud: The Rise & Reign of the Unruly Woman (2017) by Anne Helen Petersen
Date & Time:
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Luann Dummer Center for Women (OEC 103)
From culture writer Anne Helen Petersen comes an accessible, analytical look at how female celebrities are pushing the boundaries of what it means to be an “acceptable” woman. You know the type: the woman who won’t shut up, who’s too brazen, too opinionated—too much. She’s the unruly woman, and she embodies one of the most provocative and powerful forms of womanhood today. Petersen uses the lens of “unruliness” to explore the ascension of pop culture powerhouses like Lena Dunham, Nicki Minaj, and Kim Kardashian, exploring why the public loves to love (and hate) these controversial figures.
