  1. I think by providing all the evidence, including some the reader didn t need hurt Willson s arguement For example, she started to talk about the Iraq war and women s rights there and how it comparted to the West, but then just left it I thought that her arguement would lead me in one direction just to have it stopped abruptly and go in another, the best example is the Middle Eastern rights I thoght that she should have tied everything together , instead of jumping around so much.


  2. I thought this was going to be a book on burlesque but it turned out to be so much Willson looks at periods in time when burlesque was most popular as they coincided with times of great change and unrest in western society She also tackles the question of whether burlesque performers are feminists or pandering to the patriarchy Some really good arguments opinions in this book that will have me pondering long after reading.


  3. Fantastic book looking at burlesque and feminism in a critical way.Interesting perspectives, a necessary for anyone interested in the burlesque feminist or not debate
