Overview

What started as a silly way for blogger Danielle Henderson and her classmates to keep track of the feminist theorists they were studying in class quickly turned into an overnight sensation. Since its launch in October 2011, the Feminist Ryan Gosling blog has close to 30,000 followers and more than 3 million page views per month.

In this hilarious book based on the wildly popular blog, the author pairs swoon-worthy photos of the steamy actor with sensitive feminist theories and plenty of sweet talk. Included are 120 full-color photos and captions throughout, with some of the best entries from the blog along with 70 to 80 percent brand-new material for the book.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The Huffington Post
"Ryan Gosling images and feminism quotes collide in this funny, clever blog that nods to women's rights using the actor's infamous 'Hey Girl' meme."

Feministing
"A huge fan of Ryan Gosling myself, Henderson’s playful tumblr makes my heart swoon even more for this past Mickey Mouse Club member whether or not he truly is feminist. But hey, a girl can dream right?"

Time
"Feminist Ryan Gosling is a brand new Tumblr that imagines the comely actor as a sensitive, empathetic feminist who’ll still call you his girl, but also knows his Judith Butler from his Chandra Mohanty. Plus, it’s really funny."

Rolling Stone
"The Feminist Ryan Gosling meme puts a clever spin on celebrity worship, with fans of the Canadian actor pairing images of his dreamy face with text in which he sweet talks ladies with references to feminist theory."

The Daily Beast
"I wouldn’t question too closely whether or not the words under Ryan Gosling’s pictures are real quotes or not. Let’s just say they are. He’s so sensitive and understanding. *Collective Sigh.*"

The Frisky
"I didn’t think anything could be better than the 'F**k yeah, Ryan Gosling'/'Hey Girl' meme about my boo, but then Feminist Ryan Gosling came along and appealed to my Betty Friedan-loving, bell hooks-reading side."

USA Today

“Flip through Feminist Ryan Gosling, a gem in this year’s barrage of . . . novelty coffee table books.” 

New York Magazine
“Hey, girl, here’s a book of that Tumblr you like so you can look at when you can’t look at Tumblr.”

Entertainment Weekly
“Henderson [has] compiled her best quips for the book.”Review: “As funny as an LOL cat, with way more sex appeal…” Nylon

Black Book Magazine
“What do you get your friend who loves The Notebook and/or feminist theory and fighting for gender equity and also has everything? Basically, blogger Danielle Henderson, creator of single-serving Tumblr sensation Feminist Ryan Gosling has you covered for the next dozen Chrisma-hanu-birth-iversaries or so with [this] coffee table book.”

Paste Magazine
“It’s more-or-less scientifically proven that no woman can resist the allure of Ryan Gosling’s endearing ways, especially when he’s saying things like, ‘Hey Girl. I just really love Azealia Banks.’” 

Flare
“Based on the wildly popular blog, this cheeky book pairs photos of actor Ryan Gosling with sensitive texts from feminist theories. Somehow, they just go hand in hand.”

Boston Herald
“Feminist theory has never looked as good as it does next to photos of actor Ryan Gosling.”

Feminist Ryan Gosling

Feminist Theories from Your Favorite Sensitive Movie Dude
By Danielle Henderson

ISBN: 9780762447367

Hey girl, just listening to you talk about Patricia Hill Collins' matrix of domination whereby race, gender, and class ideologies permeate the social structure to such a degree that they become hegemonic and thanking my lucky stars for you.

Hey girl, sometimes I think about Foucault's theory of marriage as a governmentally developed tool that interferes with the appropriation of land rights, normalizes heterosexuality, and subjugates a woman's sexuality and it makes me want to cry with you.

Hey girl, just daydreaming about what a kick-ass, injustice-thumping, crime-fighting duo Emma Goldman and I would make.

Hey girl, you built a room of your own and a room in my heart.

Hey girl, the post-feminist fetishization of motherhood is deeply rooted in classism but I still think we'd make cute babies.

Hey girl, I know how Judith Butler feels about subverting the dominant paradigm and rejecting the naturalization of heteronormativity, but I got you this flower.

Hey girl, my perfect Saturday is a hot cup of tea at sunrise, a trip to the Farmer's Market, and curling up on the couch to figure out bell hooks' theory that feminism is a struggle to eradicate the ideology of domination that permeates Western culture with you.

Hey girl, start a revolution. Stop hating your body.
