MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is the first work to cover strong women characters in media since Action Chicks: New Images of Tough Women in Popular Culture (Palgrave Macmillian, 2004). Its broad appeal makes it a good fit for public, school, and academic libraries and for anyone interested in gender roles and the historical time line of female toughness." - Library Journal
"The writing is engaging; the content is accurate and makes good reading. A fun addition to reference collections from high school and up." - Booklist
