“Andi Zeisler, Bitch Media cofounder and feminist samurai, breaks the pop-culture time machine and makes you beg for more.” -Susie Bright, best-selling author and host of In Bed with Susie Bright
“As one of our most passionate and important feminist voices, Andi Zeisler takes on 'marketplace feminism,' a feel-good, newly cool and media-friendly phenomenon disengaged from the reality of our ongoing and deeply entrenched forms of gender inequality. Engaging, smart and provocative, We Were Feminists Once challenges us to take on the gap between glitzy media appropriations of feminism and the significant unfinished business of the women's movement.” -Susan J. Douglas, award-winning author of Where the Girls Are and Enlightened Sexism
“Zeisler's analysis of what she calls 'marketplace feminism' is acute and endlessly relevant, highlighting the insidiousness of the coopting powers that be, and calling on feminists to direct their resources toward legitimate political action and reclaim feminism as an identity, not something commodifiable.” -Publishers Weekly
“With delightfully dry wit, Zeisler carries the discussion of the portrayal of women in advertising, movies, television, and fashion both in the present day and recent history. …This thought-provoking yet sobering consideration of the current state of feminism emphasizes the need to continue to fight for full equality. Highly recommended for readers with an interest in women's studies, pop culture, and the media.” -Library Journal, Editors' Spring Pick 2016
“Spirited, witty, and ferociously incisive.” -Kirkus Reviews
“Extremely insightful…One cannot quarrel with [Zeisler's] conclusion that the actual term feminism, once freighted with images of bra-burning, hairy-legged harridans has now become so lightweight as to be meaningless.” -Jane Hailé, New York Journal of Books
