Dated by now, and dry academic reading that can be rough without some background in sociology and feminist theory (I have the latter, but not the former), but there were flashes in there of... me, I guess. Can I say that without sounding like a douchebag? Bald women in combat boots, traipsing through life with foul language and an ironic grin. I can get behind that.
