Reminds me of Virgin Suicides. In the same vein of white feminism novels written by men, which some have read as exploitative. Personally, I didn't feel that way. Joanne is a fully developed character, a good wife and mom, and a talented photographer. Without spoiling anything (if you don't already know the plot), you're really left wondering what more people in her life could possibly want from her. Definitely places the blame for men's fears about women's rights squarely on the men's shoulders. I feel like there's a half-assed attempt to be racially inclusive, but I think it'd be better if it included commentary on how white feminism isn't always racially inclusive. It just felt weak, and was probably the least well-considered element, in my opinion.
