Female Chauvinist Pigs
- Women and the Rise of Raunch Culture
- By: Ariel Levy
- Narrated by: Aimee Jolson
- Length: 5 hrs and 31 mins
Meet the Female Chauvinist Pig - the new brand of "empowered woman" who wears the Playboy bunny as a talisman, bares all for Girls Gone Wild, pursues casual sex as if it were a sport, and embraces "raunch culture". If male chauvinist pigs of years past thought of women as pieces of meat, Female Chauvinist Pigs of today are doing them one better. They think they're being brave, they think they're being funny, but in Female Chauvinist Pigs, Ariel Levy asks if the joke is on them.

Would read, but needs an update
This was a great read. I was a preteen and teen during the rise of raunch culture, so I understand the pop references, but I’m not sure this books will stand the test of time. I’d love to read an updated version.

Finally a book that tells our story. It made me feel like a queer brown teenager again. Thank you Gabby Rivera!
