Body Horror: Essays on Misogyny and Capitalism (pre-order)

from 9.95

 by Anne Elizabeth Moore

Unspeakable acts are committed on women’s bodies under capitalism—in entertainment, medicine, and due to the conditions of labor that drive our economy. Moore explores the global toll of capitalism on women with thorough research, surprising humor, and ease—especially when examining her own experiences with disease and health care—to create a portrait of contemporary American culture that is gory and fascinating.

PRAISE FOR ANNE ELIZABETH MOORE:
"A scholarly, holistic look at the global garment industry, one of the largest employers of women on earth. Describing the environmental, social, economic and personal costs of fast fashion in a style cool as gin, Threadbare is both a damning indictment and a stellar example of comics journalism."
—Molly Crabapple, author of Drawing Blood

“Anne Elizabeth Moore lets readers peer over her shoulder as she attempts the implausible. It turns out, the implausible is hard, and funny, and tragic, and illuminating, but once you sign up for the journey she never lets you look away. After reading what this woman accomplished in a few months, you might ask yourself some hard questions about how you spent last summer...” 
—Glynn Washington, NPR’s Snap Judgment

"[New Girl Law is a] post-Empirical, proto-fourth-wave-feminist memoir-cum-academic abstract [that] makes our country’s Mommy Wars look like child’s play—and proves … why we should be paying attention to Cambodia’s record of human rights and gender equity.”
