New Book of the Week

Princesses & Pornstars : Sex Power Identity
Emily Maguire 
Text Publishing


After forty years of feminism where are we? What has 
happened to women’s rights in an era of girlie magazines, 
plastic surgery, crash diets and desperate celebrities?

A feminist author looks for a way towards more equality 
for women in their public and personal lives. A mix of 
personal story, interview, and political analysis. A call 
to arms for young women who grew up thinking the 
struggle was over.

Emily Maguire is the author of the novels Taming the Beast (2004) and The Gospel According to Luke (2006). Her latest book is Smoke in the Room (2009).
