King Kong Theorie by Virginie Despentes
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.0 MB
Overview: With humor, rage, and confessional detail, Virginie Despentes–in her own words "more King Kong than Kate Moss"–delivers a highly charged account of women’s lives today. She explodes common attitudes about sex and gender, and shows how modern beauty myths are ripe for rebelling against. Using her own experiences of rape, prostitution, and working in the porn industry as a jumping-off point, she creates a new space for all those who can’t or won’t obey the rules. That Despentes continues in this vein is a shame, particularly at a time when feminism may have to fight hard to maintain hard-won gains during the recession. We will need to shout to be heard, but even more than that we will need to make sense.
