Feminism and Pop Culture by Andi Zeisler
This book is a great way to get a brief overview of feminism, gender, and identity as viewed through the lens of pop culture. To me, it makes complete sense to look at pop culture (that is, popular culture) to look at how women, femaleness, and ideas of equality. The book is written in a way that is pretty accessible for people who are curious about learning more about this subject, and the extensive citations and reading lists are perfect for people who want to read more.
