Bitch Magazine’s take on “What to Expect When You’re Expecting”

I’m currently working on a paper exploring representations of pregnancy in Hollywood and came across the ever incisive Bitch Magazine’s pretty scathing review of the upcoming ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting”, a Hollywood film based on the hugely successful birth and parenting guide.

Predictably, Hollywood still insists on promoting heteronormativity, stereotypes and gender essentialism when it comes to representations of parenting.

Maybe one to miss?
