About this book

Contrary to clichés about the end of feminism, Deborah Siegel argues that younger women are not abandoning the movement but reinventing it. After forty years, is feminism today a culture, or a cause? A movement for personal empowerment, or broad-scale social change? Have women achieved equality, or do we still have a long way to go?

Reviews

"My hope is that after reading this book, you will have a deeper sense of many of the stories that make feminist history and philosophy, and you will use them to continue to figure out what feminism means to you." - from the foreword by Jennifer Baumgardner"Siegel has her finger on the pulse of one of the main issues concerning women today: generational infighting around the unfinished business of feminism. It's an issue that concerns everyone whether or not they use the f-word." - Catherine Orenstein, author of Red Riding Hood Uncloaked'Sisterhood, Interrupted tells the history of conflicts within feminism without demonizing or blaming.Siegel conveys the excitement of feminism, then and now. She offersan informed and sympathetic perspective on the second wavethat will help younger readers understand what it was like to be part of a movement that planned to change the world.And her framing of contemporary feminism will shape future conversations. Her explanations of what's happening now - the significant trends and controversies within the movement - provide a clarity that's lacking in the work of many feminist authors, from any generation. I couldn't put the book down.' Alison Piepmeier, co-editor of Catching a Wave:Reclaiming Feminism for the 21st Century

"Someone should make a t-shirt for Deborah Siegel that says, 'This is

what a feminist historian looks like'...a thorough and engaging narrative." - Merri Lisa Johnson, Director of the Center for Women's and Gender Studies, USC Upstate
