Brazos Bookstore Welcomes Kristin Anderson to Discuss 'Modern Misogyny'

Psychology professor Kristin Anderson will deliver a talk about her book, "Modern Misogyny," on Thursday, Sept. 3, at 7 p.m. at Brazos Bookstore, 2421 Bissonnet St.

Published by Oxford University Press, the book is an exploration of the nature, function and implications of modern anti-feminism in the United States. Anderson presents the argument that gender equality has not been fully achieved and that anti-feminism is now packaged in a more palatable, stealthy form. "Modern Misogyny" emphasizes recent social moves from feminist activism to individualism, consumerism and self-empowerment. Anderson challenges the assumption that feminism is unnecessary and calls for a revived feminism.
