Description

The "New York Times" bestselling author of "Girls & Sex" and "Cinderella Ate My Daughter" delivers her first ever collection of essays funny, poignant, deeply personal and sharply observed pieces, drawn from three decades of writing, which trace girls and women's progress (or lack thereof) in what Orenstein once called a half-changed world. Named one of the 40 women who changed the media business in the last 40 years by "Columbia Journalism Review", Peggy Orenstein is one of the most prominent, unflinching feminist voices of our time. Her writing has broken ground and broken silences on topics as wide-ranging as miscarriage, motherhood, breast cancer, princess culture and the importance of girls' sexual pleasure. Her unique blend of investigative reporting, personal revelation and unexpected humor has made her books bestselling classics. In "Don't Call Me Princess", Orenstein's most resonant and important essays are available for the first time in collected form, updated with both an original introduction and personal reflections on each piece. Her takes on reproductive justice, the infertility industry, tensions between working and stay-at-home moms, pink ribbon fear-mongering and the complications of girl culture are not merely timeless they have, like Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale", become "more" urgent in our contemporary political climate. Don't Call Me Princess" offers a crucial evaluation of where we stand today as women in our work lives, sex lives, as mothers, as partners illuminating both how far we've come and how far we still have to go.
