I've been reading a bunch of feminist books:

Selling Anxiety: How the News Media Scare Women by Caryl Rivers
Eye-opening and funny, Boston University professor Caryl Rivers calls out "man bites dog" media coverage that asserts women naturally belong in the home, despite the fact that women are more advanced in business, academia, medicine, etc. now than ever before. These stories are designed to play into the fears of affluent, white women, manipulating these women's high buying power. Covering everything from negative representations of working mothers to salacious coverage of female murderers and crooks, this book sheds new light on the media's assault on female success.

Highly recommended as an engaging read and a source of fresh information. Also recommended for the woman who's sick of being told she's doing everything wrong.
