After forty years of feminism where are we?

What has happened to women’s rights in the era of terror and the age of the celebrity diet?

Do girls and women have real choices beyond becoming princesses or pornstars?

What is the modesty movement? Is raunch culture damaging women?

Why are women still restricted by the sexualised identities of virgins or whores?

In this groundbreaking book, award-winning journalist and novelist Emily Maguire examines these issues with wit and intelligence. She looks for a way towards more equality for women in their public and private lives.

Princesses & Pornstars is a bold mix of personal story, interview reportage, analysis and polemic. It’s a call to arms for a generation that grew up thinking the struggle was over.
