Doll is a feminist pop-culture critique of dolls, doll history and doll culture.  It shows how dolls present an image of an idealized body, reinforcing dominant views about patriarchy, whiteness and class. By analyzing dolls from 17th century Japanese Hinamatsuri festivals, to the '80s American Girl Dolls, and even to today's bitmoji, Doll reveals how the objects society encourages us to play with as girls shape the women we become.


Maria Teresa Hart is a writer and editor whose articles and essays have appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, Vox, The Washington Post, Teen Vogue and other national periodicals. She has worked as an editor for several major publishers, including Penguin Random House and  Bloomsbury. She is a Smith College graduate.
