I am an unruly woman, and this book spoke to me on many levels. In each of her ten essays, Anne Helen Petersen manages to impart a brief history of a celebrity's rise to fame/infamy while also providing the context for the "charges" leveled against her. For example, in the chapter entitled "Too Pregnant," we learn about Kim Kardashian's ever-so-public, not-so-cute first pregnancy, but also the history of how popular media has treated pregnant women (which has lead to us thinking that Kim's pregnancy was "not-so-cute"). Petersen is also quick to acknowledge that women of colour unquestionably receive more vitriol for their unruliness, as evidenced by the utterly vicious treatment experienced by Serena Williams (Too Strong) and Nicki Minaj (Too Slutty). Even if you've never heard of the women profiled in this book, or if you're not their biggest fan, there's something to learn from these pages.
