Plastic Surgery or "Cosmetic Darwinism?" - Andi Zeisler

Complete program at: Bitch Magazine editor Andi Zeisler offers a critical commentary on cosmetic surgery in a reading from her article, "Plastic Passion: Tori Spelling's Breasts and Other Results of Cosmetic Darwinism." ----- Lisa Jervis and Andi Zeisler celebrate "BITCHfest: Ten Years of Cultural Criticism from the Pages of BITCH Magazine." In the wake of Sassy and as an alternative to the more staid reporting of Ms., Bitch was launched in the mid-nineties as a Xerox-and-staple zine covering the landscape of popular culture from a feminist perspective. Both unabashed in its love for the guilty pleasure of consumer culture and deeply thoughtful about the way the pop landscape reflects and impacts women's lives, Bitch grew to be, today, a touchstone of hip, young feminist thought, looking with both wit and irreverence at the way pop culture informs feminism - and vice versa. "BITCHfest" offers an assortment of the most provocative pieces from the past along with new pieces - smart, nuanced, cranky, outrageous, and clear-eyed all. Lisa Jervis is publisher; Andi Zeisler is editorial/creative director. - Cody's Books
