Description - What a Girl Wants? by Diane Negra

"What a Girl Wants" holds up a mirror to the contemporary female subject who finds herself the target of contemporary advertisers. Centralized in commodity culture to a largely unprecedented degree at a time when Hollywood romantic comedies, chick-lit, and female-centered primetime TV dramas compete for her attention and spending power. Across the range of the female life cycle, girls and women of every age are now invited to celebrate their empowerment in a culture that sometimes seems dedicated to gratifying their every desire. This book asks why, at a moment of widespread and intense hype about the spectrum of female options, choices and pleasures available, so few women actually seem to find cause for celebration.
