Misogynies Summary

Misogynies by Joan Smith

Misogynies is one of the most celebrated feminist texts by a British author. First published in 1989, it created shock waves with its analyses of history, literature and popular culture. Joan Smith drew on her own experience as one of the few women reporting the Yorkshire Ripper murders and looked at novels, slasher movies, Page Three and Princess Diana, teasing out the attitudes that brought them together. A feminist classic, Smith's exploration of fear and hatred of women resonates to this day.

Misogynies Reviews

'Brilliant and unerring - a fascinating book' Marilyn French; 'A superb and vivid piece of writing, eminently readable, wonderfully fresh' Phyllis Chesler, author of Women and Madness; 'A fine and invigorating achievement' Guardian; 'A thought-provoking book' The Times
