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 more.
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 theNew York Timesran 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 fromAbzug,BellaandBaby-sitters Club,The toXena, Yogurt,andZits, and filled with entertaining sidebars and arresting images, this is a must-read for the modern woman.
