Anne Helen Petersen: Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud: The Rise and Reign of the Unruly Woman
You know the type: the woman who won’t shut up, who’s too brazen, too opinionated—too much. She’s the unruly woman, and she embodies one of the most provocative and powerful forms of womanhood today. In Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud, popular BuzzFeed columnist Anne Helen Petersen examines this phenomenon, using the lens of “unruliness” to discuss the ascension of pop culture powerhouses like Amy Schumer, Nicki Minaj, and Caitlyn Jenner, and why the public loves to love (and hate) these controversial figures. With its brisk and engaging analysis, and its appealing topic, Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud will be a conversation-starting book on what makes and breaks celebrity today.
