Unspeakable acts are committed on women's bodies under capitalism everyday. In Body Horror, Anne Elizabeth Moore explores the global toll of capitalism on women with thorough research and surprising humor, given the horrific nature of her findings. The essays range from journalistic investigations (the Cambodian garment industry) to thoughts on popular entertainment to her own experiences seeking care and community in the United States health care system.
