Guest: Anne Helen Petersen
Just in time for Summer we round up our best pop culture tips to enjoy – including the book from our guest Anne Helen Petersen who writes about culture, celebrity, and feminism in Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud: The Rise and Reign of the Unruly Woman.
We have long been reading Petersen’s work and we can highly recommend her previous book Scandals of Classic Hollywood. She has a PhD in media studies and is a Senior Culture Writer for BuzzFeed.
Her latest book examines a group of iconic, brave women whose behavior pushes the boundaries of what some seem to think is acceptable for women in the limelight.
And then - what are we at PCC looking forward to this Summer? We roundup our favorite TV shows, films, and much more!
You can find Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud: The Rise and Reign of the Unruly Woman on Amazon and other online channels.
