Feminist Ryan Gosling
Feminist Theory (as Imagined) from Your Favorite Sensitive Movie Dude
By (author) Danielle Henderson

Summary

Based on the popular blog of the same name, Feminist Ryan Gosling pairs swoon-worthy photos of the sensitive, steamy actor with feminist theories to the delight of women (and more than a few of their mothers) everywhere.

What started as a silly way for blogger Danielle Henderson and her classmates to keep track of the feminist theorists they were studying in class quickly turned into an overnight sensation. Packed with 100+ photos and captions throughout -- including the best "Hey girl" lines from the blog and 80 percent brand-new material -- this book is a must-have for feminists and fans of the actor alike. What more could a girl want? You know, besides gender equality and all that.

reviews

The Huffington Post
"Ryan Gosling images and feminism quotes collide in this funny, clever blog that nods to women's rights using the actor's infamous 'Hey Girl' meme."

Feministing
"A huge fan of Ryan Gosling myself, Henderson’s playful tumblr makes my heart swoon even more for this past Mickey Mouse Club member whether or not he truly is feminist. But hey, a girl can dream right?"

Time
"Feminist Ryan Gosling is a brand new Tumblr that imagines the comely actor as a sensitive, empathetic feminist who’ll still call you his girl, but also knows his Judith Butler from his Chandra Mohanty. Plus, it’s really funny."

Rolling Stone
"The Feminist Ryan Gosling meme puts a clever spin on celebrity worship, with fans of the Canadian actor pairing images of his dreamy face with text in which he sweet talks ladies with references to feminist theory."

The Daily Beast
"I wouldn’t question too closely whether or not the words under Ryan Gosling’s pictures are real quotes or not. Let’s just say they are. He’s so sensitive and understanding. *Collective Sigh.*"

The Frisky
"I didn’t think anything could be better than the 'F**k yeah, Ryan Gosling'/'Hey Girl' meme about my boo, but then Feminist Ryan Gosling came along and appealed to my Betty Friedan-loving, bell hooks-reading side."

USA Today

“Flip through Feminist Ryan Gosling, a gem in this year’s barrage of . . . novelty coffee table books.” 

New York Magazine
“Hey, girl, here’s a book of that Tumblr you like so you can look at when you can’t look at Tumblr.”

Entertainment Weekly
“Henderson [has] compiled her best quips for the book.”Review: “As funny as an LOL cat, with way more sex appeal…” Nylon

Black Book Magazine
“What do you get your friend who loves The Notebook and/or feminist theory and fighting for gender equity and also has everything? Basically, blogger Danielle Henderson, creator of single-serving Tumblr sensation Feminist Ryan Gosling has you covered for the next dozen Chrisma-hanu-birth-iversaries or so with [this] coffee table book.”

Paste Magazine
“It’s more-or-less scientifically proven that no woman can resist the allure of Ryan Gosling’s endearing ways, especially when he’s saying things like, ‘Hey Girl. I just really love Azealia Banks.’”
