    Kindle Kelly Oliver #210; #210; Hunting Girls Epub #180; hunting kindle, girls kindle, Hunting Girls eBookOliver's book delivers some interesting and important points about consent campus rape the interconnections between social mediasexualisation but the overall coherence of the book is lost within the frequent repetition of arguments and evidence It needed a thorough editing there seemed to be no real flow or depth to many of the arguments In addition Oliver seems determined to emphasise the negative forgetting that the way we decide to view and use media is part of the experience There is only so much interpretation of a filmbookform that can be forced upon the viewer Oliver thinks putting women like Katniss Everdeen on the screen is so that they can be beaten and violated For my part I see her holding her own Yes violence is a part of her world as much as her male counterparts but that is the world One which she tries to change She is female in a male dominated environment as most envir

    Kindle Kelly Oliver #210; #210; Hunting Girls Epub #180; hunting kindle, girls kindle, Hunting Girls eBookugh this book is such a fucking mess was an editor involved at any point? I mean this in a sincere way Anyway the book is loosely organized around 2 thematic concerns1 Sexual Assault2 YA Novels and the new sort of female protagonistif you are saying wow these things don't get together you are probably right Rather than fixating on causes of sexual violence such as idk? Masculinity? Compulsory Heterosexuality? Social Institutions including class that shield certain classes of sexual predators from repercussions from their actions? Oliver focuses on the narratives of a series of YA novels and films although some things are very much not like the other and her point bears far less repeating It is an almost grim march through the first and third chapter which are extended plot explanations and pulling out singular points which are repetitive dull and feel completely disconnected from the second chapter that is about the com

    Kindle Kelly Oliver #210; #210; Hunting Girls Epub #180; hunting kindle, girls kindle, Hunting Girls eBookTBH I spent most of the book saying 'What the hell?' I really don't agree with a lot of the things Oliver says in regards to the film heroines though I admit I'm probably biased The book seems mainly about rape in college campuses mostly with unconscious girls or nearly unconscious and the role of Social Media in further traumatizing the victims This bit was well written and definitely highlights the issue It's not something I really now about except from film and television My main issues was with statements like our culture encouraged the denigration and assault of girls and women from fairytales to hollywood blockbusters and connects campus rape with girls being hurt in teen films the main examples being Hunger Games Divergent and Twilight Unlike what Oliver says I don't think the heroines of these films are at risk of being sexually assaulted by the leading males in Twilight there is definite risk of other people but that is never even brought up In fact there are peopl

    Kindle Kelly Oliver #210; #210; Hunting Girls Epub #180; hunting kindle, girls kindle, Hunting Girls eBookDNF The author attempts to shine a light on the prevelance and seemingly upheaval of sexual assault across American University Deemed The Hunting Ground from a documentary colleges are where most rapes occur with a growing concern of men stalking their prey young women and using drugs or booze to lower her inhibitions or consciousnessThis is further reinforced by today's pop culture like Hunger Games Divergent Twilight Series and the like Strong female leads are hot but to Oliver what is hotter is the amount of violence against these women the brutal end of their innocence and the fact that we have to carefu

    Kindle Kelly Oliver #210; #210; Hunting Girls Epub #180; hunting kindle, girls kindle, Hunting Girls eBookGreat premise but I wasn't satisfied by the execution This book needed thorough editing to cut down on redundancies and a stronger link between fact campus rape statistics and fiction media portrayals of women I felt like the scope of women characters analyzed was also a bit narrow Along with the meandering arguments this made the book feel a bit surface level

    Kindle Kelly Oliver #210; #210; Hunting Girls Epub #180; hunting kindle, girls kindle, Hunting Girls eBookThis book certainly has an interesting premise Written by an eminent feminist philosopher currently Professor of Philosophy at Vanderbilt University it looks at popular culture's fixation on representing young women as predators and prey and the implication that violence especially sexual violence is an inevitable part of feminine coming of age I came to this book with high hopes for its content“Why do we find violent pubescent girls killing animals humans and the occasional vampire so appealing? Is this equal opportunity killing? Killing instead of loving animals has become the emblem of girl power Just as girls are hunted and attacked with relish in these films our heroines displace that patriarchal violence onto their animal prey”The first s
