Book Review: Dressed for Freedom by Einav Rabinovitch-Fox

This one reads a bit more like a historical reference book than a “sit down and read it through” narrative – which is unfortunate, as I was really excited about the topic. “The personal is, after all, the political – and nowhere is that more evident than in one’s self-expression.

There’s still a lot of interesting stuff here, although I must admit that I found the writing repetitive and the chapters longer than they needed to be as a result. It slowed the pace and kept pulling me out of the narrative moments, which was frustrating when the reason for the pulling out felt like unnecessary repetition. Particularly since the narrative bits were very engaging. It probably also didn’t help that I read it on a Kindle Oasis, which makes illustrations/photographs difficult.

Still there is a solid gathering of history here, and while I find it frustrating that we continue to fight many of these battles, albeit on slightly different fronts, definitely appreciate the author’s efforts to highlight these issues and how they have existed – and been addressed -throughout the past century-plus…

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation-free review copy.
