If you have ever said or overheard, "I just don't understand Trump voters!", this novel has the answers. I didn't expect to agree with the complaints of Angry White Men, but Kimmel reminds us that compassion has to be a two-way street: while the objects of WMA (White Male Anger) are unfairly blamed, the origins of their grievances are real and affect us all.

I'm so glad I had to read this for Northshire's Feminist Reading group, otherwise it would never have crossed my radar. This book revealed to me the unconscious prejudices I still carry despite being a proud feminist. Whether you're male or female or fluid, a loudly-identifying or closeted feminist, you need to read this and realize what's really going on when we taunt a Rihanna/Britney/Sylvia Plath/etc... ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus

You might recognize West from her feminist and comedic articles for Jezebel, GQ, and The Guardian. In reading Shrill, you'll find out why she's a leading critic of sexism in our society. Her personal essays are witty and thought provoking. For those who enjoyed Tina Fey's Bossypants or Caitlin Moran's How to Be a Woman, you will love this book! ~ Reviewed by Rachel Williams

Why does our society love to hate female celebrities? Why do we relish in their failures more than their successes? Think Britney Spears, Amy Winehouse, and Whitney Houston. But would you also maybe consider Sylvia Plath, Mary Wollstonecraft, or Charlotte Bronte in the same way? Doyle uses a feminist lens with a historian’s analysis to examine why popular culture has and continues to vilify or canonize women in the public eye.

When Britney Spears had a public, painful breakdown in 2007, the world heaped abuse, not empathy, upon her. In this well-researched book, Doyle explores the way female celebrities--from Britney to Hillary Clinton--are frequently treated with cruelty in our society. ~ Reviewed by Marisa Langlois
