    Summary: 
    In this collection of sharp, poignant essays, Bolin blends the personal and political in an exploration of American culture through the lens of our obsession with dead women. Stories, novels, movies and television programs are obsessed with women who are abused, killed, and disenfranchised. Bolin shows how women's bodies (dead and alive) are used as props to bolster men's stories. She analyzes stories of witches and werewolves, and ends by interrogating the persistent injustices real women suffer because of the portrayal of women in media. -- adopted from back cover
