A great collection of fun, reader-friendly articles from the first 10 years of Bitch magazine's existence. These authors cover a wide range of subjects and aspects of pop culture with wit and intelligence. A great, motivating read!

Sharp wit and pop culture...a permanent addition to a modern feminist's library!
This is an excellent companion to the 1999 publication, The Bust Guide to the New Girl Order by Marcelle Karp and Debbie Stoller.

"Staff Pick" by ,

Girl power, Riot Grrrl, first-, second-, or third-wave feminist — however you choose to label your gender-equality insistence, Bitch magazine has had you covered. To celebrate their ten year anniversary, Bitch has released this cultural compendium; a neat package that packs a powerful punch. Sassy, provocative, and endlessly illuminating, Bitchfest makes for an awesome girl's best friend.

"Review" by , "Readers new to this feminist quarterly will find the articles, almost without exception, original, intelligent, and well written. This compilation has staying power."
"Review" by , "Smartly written, socio-cultural vignettes that speak to everyone, loud and clear."
"Review" by , "[T]here's plenty here to amuse and enlighten the target audience...and plenty to rattle the cages of card-carrying macho men and women who might find the racy rants a bit over the top."
"Synopsis" by ,
In the wake of Sassy and as an alternative to the more staid reporting of Ms., Bitch was launched in the mid-nineties as a Xerox-and-staple zine covering the landscape of popular culture from a feminist perspective. Both unabashed in its love for the guilty pleasures of consumer culture and deeply thoughtful about the way the pop landscape reflects and impacts women's lives, Bitch grew to be a popular, full-scale magazine with a readership that stretched worldwide. Today it stands as a touchstone of hip, young feminist thought, looking with both wit and irreverence at the way pop culture informs feminism--and vice versa--and encouraging readers to think critically about the messages lurking behind our favorite television shows, movies, music, books, blogs, and the like. BITCHFest offers an assortment of the most provocative essays, reporting, rants, and raves from the magazine's first ten years, along with new pieces written especially for the collection. Smart, nuanced, cranky, outrageous, and clear-eyed, the anthology covers everything from a 1996 celebration of pre-scandal Martha Stewart to a more recent critical look at the "gayby boom"; from a time line of black women on sitcoms to an analysis of fat suits as the new blackface; from an attempt to fashion a feminist vulgarity to a reclamation of female virginity. It's a recent history of feminist pop-culture critique and an arrow toward feminism's future.
