Chapter 1 introduces key concepts from material feminism, relying in particular on the work of Karen Barad and Rosi Braidotti. Becoming is implicated in the desire that leads to merged and changed identities, which is particularly significant during adolescence; mattering involves the dynamic process between matter and representationality; “knowing in being” is the combined focus on epistemology and ontology that material feminism emphasizes. Libba Bray’s Beauty Queens serves as an exemplar for these theoretical concepts.
