Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A humorous illustrated guide to turning any generic 11 1/2" doll into the ultimate feminist teaching tool.

In this play guide spoof, Barbie is liberated from her pink plastic world of fashion modeling and Corvette driving to assume roles that REAL women have endured for years. Here you'll find Safe-Sex Barbie; Barbie Antoinette (So what if she doesn't have a head on her shoulders, all men want is a pair of legs anyway), Anita Hill Barbie; Marie Curie Barbie; and in honor of her upcoming 40th anniversary, Hot Flash Barbie (comes complete with tiny estrogen supplements).

This tongue-in-cheek guide includes 40 photographs and is perfect for Barbie-phobic parents who have pushed wooden educational toys for years only to find their daughters whining for a disproportionate projection of men's erotic desires of their very own. With this book any 11 1/2" doll can be transformed into the ultimate feminist teaching tool.
