Deluged by persuasive advertisements and meticulous (though often misguided) advice experts, women from the 1940s to the 1970s were coaxed to "think pink" when they thought of what it meant to be a woman. Attaining feminine perfection meant conforming to a mythical standard, one that would come wrapped in an adorable pink package, if those cunning marketers were to be believed. With wise humor and a savvy eye for curious, absurd, and at times wildly funny period artifacts, Lynn Peril gathers here the memorabilia of the era --from kitschy board games and lunch boxes to outdated advice books and health pamphlets--and reminds us how media messages have long endeavored to shape women's behavior and self-image, with varying degrees of success.Vividly illustrated with photographs of vintage paraphernalia, this entertaining social history revisits the nostalgic past, but only to offer a refreshing message to women who lived through those years as well as those who are coming of age now.… (mere)

This was a good book for me because I never took any sort of women's studies, sociology, etc in college. This is written at a very general public level. Think James Lileks. It's anecdotal rather than analysis, which is what I wanted. It was very entertaining in a 'oh how could they?' sort of way. One of those books where I jotted down page numbers of particularly amusing bits, for passing along later, and ended up with rows and rows of numbers. ( )

A quick read that was at the same time horrifying and refreshing. Horrifying to hear, in such great detail, the stupid things that women were (and still are) encouraged to do to be "feminine." Refreshing as it makes me glad that I always rebelled against such things from a young age, and still do to this day. Femininity be damned. ( )

Peril provides an entertaining history of cultural ideas about "femininity" in America from the 1930's through the 1970's. Throughout the book are fascinating nuggets of "femorbilia" (to take the name of Peril's column in Bust magazine) such as marriage manuals, "fatty fiction", and ads encouraging women to douche with Lysol. Peril makes learning fun with easy, breezy writing style, cool sidebars, and plentiful pictures and illustrations. I heart this book! ( )

Think Pink analyzes the socially constructed feminine gender though the lens of pop culture. Advice books, education, fashion, television, household product marketing, magazines and movies all do their part to make sure growing girls are trained to accept their lot in life as the bearer of children. Dating and marriage just happened to be incidental steps. By comparison, books and magazines produced for boys encouraged them to become more fully rounded human beings.

Lynn Peril walks us through the evolution of femininity using various points of popular culture from the 1920s through the mid 1980s. Her wit and sense of humor with have you cracking up and feeling sad and pathetic by turns. Makes you wonder if we really are past the bad ole pre-feminism days.

You'll hunger for more of the mind blowing ads and images. I like how Peril grounds the information by including personal anecdotes so the book doesn't read like a dry text book.

This book will hold interest for folks into a lot of topics including sociology, gender and American pop culture.

Even though a baby couldn't read and she might not like the opposite sex until some time after puberty (and maybe not even then), that didn't mean she coudn't start learning how to get a date while she was still in her crib.
