“The next time you put on your favorite hoodie, ask yourself, “Would this sweatshirt stop a bullet?” While it may sound like something out of a sci-fi movie, bulletproof fashion – ordinary-looking clothing that contains a hidden layer of Kevlar or other bullet-resistant material – is available to the general public through a number of online retailers. In her new book, Bulletproof Fashion: Security, Emotions, and the Fortress Body, UAlbany Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Professor Barbara Sutton explores what this new frontier of personal security means for the individual and what it says about current U.S. society.” To read the full interview with Barbara Sutton, please visit: https://magazine.albany.edu/evergreen/bookmark-with-professor-barbara-sutton?fbclid=IwAR0W-dnuqH1uWiEUQ496pGAQraaMsqIv0lDa1wYgIfwcPdrGkBzjENOZ45I.
