"Sheridan-Rabideau presents a poignant example of how feminist activism has existed and can exist in today's society with well-researched feminist theory ... The case of GirlZone and Sheridan-Rabideau's discussion of it are important to feminist scholars and feminist activists."— Femspec
"Sheridan-Rabideau tells the fascinating but sadly all too common story of the rise and demise of a feminist organization for girls ... The book contextualizes the emergence of this feminist organization within 1990s girl culture and poses a challenge to feminism's image for both a new generation and to potential funding agencies in a time and context hostile to feminism."— CHOICE
"This is a bright, readable, passionate, and highly authoritative book about the struggle between grassroots politics and consumer/media culture. Sheridan-Rabideau uses insights from literacy, rhetoric, and discourse studies to offer fascinating analyses of communication difficulties and decision making in the GirlZone organization."— Deborah Brandt, author of Literacy in American Lives"
