Funny, smart and encyclopaedic, nimbly addressing everyone from the biblical Lilith, to the movie Carrie, this book is dedicated to exploring the female dark side, as represented in female monsters throughout pop culture. These monsters express taboo truths about female life, and femininity. They speak to urges women are encouraged to hide, or deny. They also speak to the viciousness with which a sexist society inflicts traditionally feminine roles upon us. This is a sympathetic look at the women we fear and what they show us about how women navigate a dangerous and frightening world.
