Book Review: The Aftermath of Feminism: Gender, Culture and Social Change by Angela McRobbie
Angela McRobbie explores the cultural forces that have negated feminism as a social movement by examining the post-feminist cultural environment in, The Aftermath of Feminism: Gender, Culture and Social Change. This book is not an empirical work, but rather a survey of changes in popular culture. McRobbie analyzes the ways in which popular culture is used to dismantle feminist gains. She is particularly interested in the future of feminism outside of academic institutions. This review highlights the major arguments in the text and concludes with a discussion of the usefulness of this book in academic courses and further study.
