Unspeakable acts are committed on women's bodies under capitalism everyday. In Body Horror, Anne Elizabeth Moore explores the global toll of capitalism on women with thorough research and surprising humor, given the horrific nature of her findings. The essays range from journalistic investigations (the Cambodian garment industry) to thoughts on popular entertainment to her own experiences seeking care and community in the United States health care system.

A fantastic read! Moore is a terrific writer - as the blurb on the book says "1000000000% punk rock" - scathingly honest and full of heart. One of the writers I would love to meet.

A beautifully-illustrated, scattered set of essays--Cambodian garment workers, superbugs, bodies and gendered violence in horror movies, a history of tampon disposal--from which larger themes of institutionalized misogyny and ableism emerge.
