Following the brutal attack on Nancy Kerrigan at the 1994 US figure Skating Championships Women on Ice is a critique of the ice skating soap opera by serious feminist academics, journalists and critics who were intrigued with the depiction of this event in the media and society. The essays explore a number of disturbing issues raised by this scandal: the roles women are meant to play in public (and that public women are meant to play in private), the prices extracted for violations of our notions of femininity, fantasies about social class and upward mobility, the ways in which the media reaffirm gender and cultural sterotypes. the ways our culture thinks about class, gender, "womanly conduct", and female athletes. Contributors include: Susan Bordo, Susan Jeffords, Marjorie Garber, Lynn Spigel and B. Ruby Rich.
