I've seen this book around for years and finally decided to read through it because of some great recent articles of Valenti's I've read. While I agree with most of what she says, and certain chapters - like those on rape culture and masculinity - are strong, something here misses the mark for me. It's definitely written for the converted, so not much is new here, and she's unnecessarily caustic at times. Admittedly, the only immediate reaction to most of the real-life examples is anger, but there has to be a conversation and an appeal somewhere to women and men raised on the other side of the issues. She rather defensively glosses over what she (correctly) expects to be her most controversial assertion without offering any real analysis.
