Maria Elena Buszek’s Pin-Up Grrrls is mentioned in Tuscaloosa’s Planet
Weekly in an interview with Shimmy Von Braun, an actress and pin=up model.
Erica Crabtree Mossholder writes, "A
fascinating book, Pin-Up Grrrls: Feminism, Sexuality, Popular Culture, chronicles
the images and manifestations of the pin-up from the 1860s to today. The
author, Maria Elena Buszek, describes why women gravitate towards the curvy
pin-up woman as the definition of beautiful, as opposed to a stick-thin image
we’ve been socialized to accept. "
