Choice is not liberation: On the buying & selling of feminism

“Writer and Bitch Media co-founder Andi Zeisler explores 50 years of tension between feminism and capitalism in popular culture, and explains how mass media has adapted and amplified the language of empowerment, but in a depoliticized form in service of selling products, and why she’s hopeful that a young generation of connected girls and women can reclaim feminism’s radical, libratory potential.
Andi is author of “We Were Feminists Once: From Riot Grrrl to CoverGirl, the Buying and Selling of a Political Movement” from PublicAffairs:
