    interesting to begin with however it shortly turned dull I did not finish the last 3 chapters of the book as a I had no inclination to read , andof the very same I d read in the chapters before I think the chapters were simply too similar within this work I was also slightly disappointed that the book did not take a stance on whether postfeminism exists and whether it is a negative or positive thing.

    This book has a lot of good theory and really does call into question postfeminism and, to a certain extent, postmodernism which I think is overdue in the academic community The theory is fairly basic, though that is a plus if you re less familiar with it However, a huge drawback is that many of the essays gloss over issues of race, class, and sexuality.
