Summary
"Overloaded looks at 'laddishness' and the cult of the 'girlie' in film, TV, advertising, music, politics, literature and society. It asks what the current cultural climate means for women, men, and the way we relate to each other. Imelda Whelehan argues that we have entered an age of retrosexism where media images of men in crisis and neurotic single women abound, and where any criticism of such images is greeted with a howl of postmodern ironic laughter. But what if the joke is on feminism, and who, in the end, has the last laugh?"--BOOK JACKET
