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.
