"Producing Women examines the ways femininity is produced through new media. Michele White considers how women are constructed, produce themselves as subjects, form vital production cultures on sites like Etsy, and deploy technological processes to reshape their digital characteristics.

Incorporating a range of examples across numerous forms of media--including trash the dress wedding photography, how-to instructions about zombie walk brides, nail polish blogging, DIY crafting, and reborn doll production--Producing Women elucidates women's production cultures online, and the ways that individuals can critically study and engage with these practices"--
