Author(s): Letizia Guglielmo, Editor
Contributors: Guglielmo, Letizia;
Abstract:

This set surveys American misogyny in all its cultural forms, from popular music, film, and education to healthcare, politics, and business. The work also assesses proposals to confront and reduce such expressions of hatred.


• Engages readers in an exploration of the history and impact of as well as current trends in and responses to misogyny on various areas of American culture to demonstrate its pervasiveness and its common foundations

• Illustrates the role of digital and social media in both amplifying misogyny and serving as a site for response to and action against misogyny

• Demonstrates that patterns of misogynistic behaviors and actions are evident throughout US history, with contemporary forms of harassment and violence often replicating those of previous decades and even centuries

• Provides a chronology of events and an appendix of organizations and agencies involved in confronting and combating misogyny in American society for ease of reference
