Author Biography: Rhonda Hammer is a research scholar at the UCLA Center for the Study of Women and co-editor of "Rethinking Media Literacy: A Critical Pedagogy of Representation".
Hammer's book is the first sustained analysis of the popularization of a certain conservative feminism, or pseudofeminism, that creates intellectual celebrities but does not address the real problems that women continue to face. Her discussion of the role of the media in the creation of feminist celebrities that appeal to young women is brilliant. Hammer's one-two punch will have many feminist scholars and activists cheering that finally someone has taken the time to meticulously expose conservative feminism as a self-serving opportunistic media fad that not only covers over the real-world exploitation of women but also collaborates with that exploitation!
