Publisher's Summary

From celebrity gossip expert and BuzzFeed culture writer Anne Helen Petersen comes an accessible, analytical look at how female celebrities are pushing boundaries of what it means to be an "acceptable" woman.
You know the type: the woman who won't shut up, who's too brazen, too opinionated - too much. She's the unruly woman, and she embodies one of the most provocative and powerful forms of womanhood today. In Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud, Anne Helen Petersen uses the lens of "unruliness" to explore the ascension of pop culture powerhouses like Lena Dunham, Nicki Minaj, and Kim Kardashian, exploring why the public loves to love (and hate) these controversial figures. With its brisk, incisive analysis, Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud will be a conversation-starting book on what makes and breaks celebrity today.


What the Critics Say

"Petersen's gloriously bumptious, brash ode to non-conforming women suits the needs of this dark moment. Her careful examination of how we eviscerate the women who confound or threaten is crucial reading if we are ever to be better." (Rebecca Traister, New York Times best-selling author of All the Single Ladies)

A step forward for self worth

As an Australian woman listening to this book for the first time, I felt both empowered and saddened to hear the words of truth by Anne Helen Peterson throughout the chapters. Whilst the majority of the book references America, it’s an eye opening read (listen) for all women, all people, around the world. It should be heard and carefully listened to, to promote everyone’s equal right to live happy and healthy lives, no matter their gender, race, size, locale... WE ARE ALL OURSELVES AND SHOULD EMBRACE AND RESPECT OURSELVES AND EACH OTHER. Thanks for a great book x
