Naked Exhibitionism

A collection of essays by a diverse range of scholars about what it means to be naked in public has been edited by Drs Angela Smith (English) and Claire Nally (Northumbria University). The essays in Naked Exhibitionism: Gendered Performance and Public Exposure (I.B. Tauris, 2013) examine various cultural phenomena from a variety of perspectives to explore the evolution of female exhibitionism from criminal taboo to prime-time entertainment. The volume includes a chapter by Angela entitled 'From girl power to lady power?: postfeminism and Ladette to Lady'. To coincide with the publication of the book, Angela and Claire have written this post on the I.B Tauris blog about the Ukrainian feminist protest group FEMEN.
