Feminism in Our Time: The Essential Writings, World War II to the Present Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Simone de Beauvoir to Susan Faludi, from the ERA to Anita Hill — a historically informed sourcebook that defines the intellectual and political underpinnings of contemporary feminism.

In this important volume, the respected feminist historian Miriam Schneir completes the work she began in her bestselling Feminism: The Essential Historical Writings, presenting contemporary writings that define the women's movement today add reveal how radically transformative a force it is throughout the world.

Ranging from intensely personal statements to ringing manifestos, from diagnosis to outright rebellion, and incorporating both public records and works addressing such specific issues as religion, rape, women's health, pornography, and the concerns of lesbians and women of color, Feminism in Our Time is the most thorough record to date of women's ongoing struggle to control their own destinies and provide alternative visions of the just society and a true human equality.
