By examining news and documentary media produced since September 11, 2001, Vavrus demonstrates that news narratives in incursions in Iraq and Afghanistathat include women use feminism selectively in gender equality narratives, which tend to reinforce historically resonant gender, race, and class identity constructions. She ultimately asserts that such reporting advances post-feminism, which, in tandem with banal militarism, subtly pushes military solutions for an array of problems women and girls face. [WorldCat]
