Read a review of her book in the Guardian by Natalie Hanman: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2010/jan/16/one-dimensional-woman-natalie-hanman
‘She has harsh words, too, for upbeat “consumer”/”self-help” feminists such as Jessica Valenti, who subsume “the political and historical . . . under the imperative to feel better about oneself”. In this logic, “Almost everything turns out to be ‘feminist’ – shopping, pole-dancing, even eating chocolate” – and feminism is sold as the “latest must-have accessory”.’
