T he stereotypes about bad girls, in my experience, are mostly true. In high school, all my bad girl compatriots came from broken homes, and current research seems to bear out that girls from broken homes start having sex earlier than girls whose parents stay together. All I know is my own experience as a bad girl who had bad girl friends. Only we wanted to hook up because we liked having sex, not because we had something to prove. She was petite and blond, funny and smart.
What makes a woman 'bad' is commonly linked to certain 'qualities' or behaviours seen as morally or socially corrosive, dirty and disgusting. In Bad Girls, Dirty BodiesGemma Commane critically explores the social, sexual and political ificance of women who are labelled 'bad', sluts or dirty. Through a variety of case studies drawn from qualitative and original ethnographic research, she argues that 'Bad Girls' disrupt heterosexual normativity and contribute new embodied knowledge. From neo-burlesque, sex-positive and queer performance art, to explicit entertainment and areas of popular culture; Commane situates 'bad' women as sites of power, possibility and success.
Through the combination of case studies Ms T, Empress Stah and RubberDoll, Mouse and Doris La TrineGemma Commane offers a challenge to those who think that sexual, slutty, bad, and dirty women are not worth listening to. ificantly, she unpicks the issues generated by women who are complicit in the subjugation, policing and marginalization of 'other' women, both in popular culture and in sites of subcultural resistance.
This book makes a bold intervention into debates on femininity, pleasure, agency, and sexualisation. Bad Girls, Dirty Bodies is a singular achievement: scholarly, sophisticated and provocative, it establishes Gemma Commane as one of the most exciting voices in feminist cultural studies today.
