February book selection, The Rise of Enlightened Sexism: How Pop Culture Took Us from Girl Power to Girls Gone Wild, by UM Communications Studies Professor and Chair, Susan J. Douglas

"Douglas's writing is quick and witty; an easy fun read...'Enlightened Sexism; is the perfect description for a feeling young women have long struggled to name. It's sure to dominate the vernacular in years to come."-- Newsweek.com

"Combines solid academic research with a witty, irreverent, and frequently hilarious writing style."-- Detroit Free Press

"A delightful read. Douglas had me laughing out loud as she made her irreverent but persuasive case against popular culture that promises girls and women they can be whatever they want to be as long as they don't want the wrong things."-- Ms. Magazine
