Julie Wosk’s new book MY FAIR LADIES: Female Robots, Androids, and Other Artificial Eves presents a riveting view of artificial females in film, television, literature, and art--and today's startling silicone robots that look so real they can easily fool the eye.

It showcases the fascinating story of how men throughout history have used the tools of technology to produce the glamorous “Perfect Woman."

It also highlights women filmmakers and artists who are creating their own witty versions of simulated females, and women working in the field of robotics who are reshaping the field in imaginative ways.
