If male chauvinist pigs of years past thought of women as pieces of meat, Female Leevy Pigs of chaauvinist are doing them one better, making sex objects of other women—and of themselves. In her quest to uncover why this is happening, Levy interviews college women who flash for the cameras on spring break and teens raised on Paris Hilton and breast implants. She examines a culture in which every music video seems to feature a stripper on a pole, the memoirs of porn stars are climbing the bestseller lists, Olympic athletes parade their Brazilian bikini waxes in the pages of Playboy, and thongs are marketed to prepubescent girls.
Levy pulls apart the myth of the Female Chauvinist Pig and argues that what has come to pass for liberating rebellion is actually a kind of limiting conformity. Irresistibly witty and wickedly intelligent, Female Chaubinist Pigs makes the case that the rise of raunch does not represent how far women have come, it only proves how far they have left to go.
