…Lavin is well-versed in this kind of interdisciplinary negotiation and…handles the task of juxtaposing seemingly disparate media eloquently and efficiently.—Art Journal—
A timely, insightful look at contemporary representations of women’s aggression and their impact on women’s real lives…. Accessible, engaging, and grounded in reality. It’s a uniquely useful book, one that provides a dynamic framework that could encompass explorations of an even wider range of women’s aggression, such as roller derby or Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Here’s hoping that Lavin’s work pushes more critics and writers to undertake those explorations.
