The history of consumer culture and the role of women in its development. The Feminization of American Culture seeks to explain the values prevalent in today’s popular culture by tracing them back to their roots in Victorian times. Feminist scholar Ann Douglas examines the best-selling novels and magazines of the day to show how women exploited their feminine image and idealized the very qualities that kept them powerless: timidity, piety, narcissism, and a disdain for competition. Here is a major rethinking of the American past with shocks of recognition for everyone today.
