LitFest: We Were Feminists Once
Once a dirty word brushed away with a grimace, “feminist” has been rebranded as a shiny label sported by movie and pop stars, fashion designers, and powerhouses like Beyoncé. It drives advertising and marketing campaigns for everything from wireless plans to underwear to perfume, presenting what’s long been a movement for social justice as just another consumer choice in a vast market. What does it mean when social change becomes a brand identity? Co-founding editor of B*tch Media, Andi Zeisler discusses her newest book: We Were Feminists Once: From Riot Grrrl to Cover Girl, the Buying and Selling of a Political Movement.
