From the Publisher
From Jezebel.com, the popular website for women, comes a must-read
encyclopedic guide to pop culture, feminism, fashion, sex, and much
Within months of Jezebel''s May 2007 appearance on the new media
scene, fans of the blog began referring to themselves as "Jezzies"
in comment threads and organizing reader meet-ups in cities all
over the world. By 2008, the devotion of the self-appointed Jezzies
reached such a fever pitch that the New York Times ran a
feature story about them and parody blogs and copycat websites
began popping up right and left.
With contributions from the writers and creatives who give the site
its distinctive tone and broad influence, THE BOOK OF JEZEBEL is an
encyclopedia of everything important to the modern woman. Running
the gamut from Abzug, Bella and
Baby-sitters Club, The to Xena,
Yogurt, and Zits, and filled with
entertaining sidebars and arresting images, this is a must-read for
the modern woman.
