Description
An urgent account of sexual politics, feminism, and the rules of power in America-and a potent vision for the way forward
As a veteran feminist and agenda-setting sex educator, Jaclyn Friedman is on the frontlines of the war for equity between the sexes. In Unscrewed, Friedman brings her sharp expertise and incisive observations on the state of sexual politics to the fore, sparking a culture-wide rethink about sex, power and what we accept.
With reportage and verve, Unscrewed builds a searing investigation into the state of sexual power in America, and outlines how to make real progress toward equality. Friedman reveals that the anxiety and fear women in our country feel around issues of their sexuality are not, in fact, their fault, but instead are side effects of what she calls our "era of fauxpowerment," wherein women have the illusion of sexual power, with no actual power to support it. Exploring the fault lines where media, religion, politics, and education impinge on our intimate lives, Unscrewed breaks down the causes and signs of fauxpowerment, then gives readers tools to take it on themselves.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Narrating her own work, Jaclyn Friedman delivers an emotionally charged performance that explores contemporary sexual politics-- specifically how "fauxpowerment" undermines female sexual power and what can be done to combat its pervasiveness. The author reveals that sexual expression is complicated and often comes at a high cost for women and girls. Consider the common practice of slut-shaming in which women and girls are judged harshly--and exclusively--for perceived deviations from expectations around their sexuality, including simply their appearance. Friedman's compelling examples and well-researched arguments are persuasive. However, her delivery is characterized by upspeak that is distracting and a timbre that is unpleasant. Some listeners may find that the uneven narration overshadows the provocative message, which would be truly unfortunate. A.S. � AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine

        October 15, 2017

        As the editor of Yes Means Yes! and host of the podcast Unscrewed, as well as the founder of the nonprofit Women, Action & the Media, Friedman has played a critical role in challenging sex-positive feminism means and how difficult it is to disentangle healthy sexuality from cultural practices that result in objectification and victim blaming. In her new book, Friedman employs tactics similar to the ones Andi Zeisler uses in We Were Feminists Once to marry theory, politics, activism, and pop culture in a way that is simultaneously conversational and polemical. For readers who share Friedman's take on sexuality, her use of the phrase "We the fauxpowered" will invoke a sense of shared experience. The term links together many of the pivotal concepts of this volume: the interlocking relationship between sex, contemporary politics, popular culture, and feminism. VERDICT While Friedman makes a convincing argument of the need for more intersectional feminism, some readers may find her language at times too polarizing to pay attention to the solid points she makes about double standards, especially as the relate to sexuality in conjunction and power.--Emily Bowles, Univ. of Wisconsin Coll. and Extension, Madison

        A feminist perspective on sexual power and its uses and abuses in America.Women's sexuality expert Friedman (What You Really Really Want: The Smart Girl's Shame-Free Guide to Sex and Safety, 2011) believes women are in the midst of an era of "fauxpowerment" whereby "bright, candy-colored" notions of female sexual liberation, equality, and sexual power cloak the real reality of the "still mostly retrograde and misogynist status quo." In clear, concise language, she argues that the current state of American culture suffers from a sexual revolution that remains unfinished and is in dire need of an overhaul while economic, governmental, and technological forces falsely promote the advancements in the sexual empowerment and equalization of women. Supporting this claim are numerous profiles of change-makers who, through their individual and collective efforts, have fostered a culture of assistance and acceptance. They include a host of grass-roots pioneers who have dedicated their lives to defusing misogyny and sexual oppression and to reshaping public perception. Friedman chronicles her discussions with reproductive justice activist Loretta Ross, her volunteer work with a sexual research study at a Toronto university, and her questioning of Facebook's little-known policy on adult products and services. She also examines the arduous fight over abortion rights and profiles award-winning female-empowerment filmmakers. With a seasoned eye, Friedman scrutinizes the complex historical legacy of sexual dehumanization and the contemporary proliferation of the teenage hookup culture. All of these interviews and anecdotal material inform readers on the slowly changing attitudes toward American sexual culture for women, from a toxic environment built on humiliation, shame, and violence to one of equality and liberation. However, notes the author, there is a long road ahead. The text is lively, emboldening, and nonjudgmental, and Friedman provides tools and processes whereby readers can become involved in an equality movement aimed at "seizing your power from a system that doesn't want you to have it." A potent, convincing manifesto on how female sexual equality marches onward despite cultural roadblocks.
