Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many young women today consider "feminism" a dirty word, an antiquated term that hasn't expanded to accommodate the diverse needs of a new generation. In addition, decades of negative campaigns, excessively "messaged" issues, and hanging chads have all combined to make political apathy appear not only smart, but also sexy. The result is that while they still bemoan the state of gender politics, gender equity, and the agendas of their local, state, and national politicians, nearly 19 million young women chose not to vote in the last election. Yes, the face of feminism is changing, but to what end? Is a new generation taking for granted the rights hard-won only a generation before? And by focusing on cultural — not electoral — politics, are women today giving their power away?

In this pivotal book, Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, environmental and political consultant, asks these critical questions, tracing feminism's distinguished past and exploring new developments in American political history, asking what can be done to protect and further women's rights and freedoms. The F-Word is truly an astonishing look at the tenuous state of women's rights and issues in America, and a call to action for the young women who have the power to change their situation.

Review:

"The F-Word offers insightful analysis that shows how women are still far from equal economically and politically. Go vote!" Joan Blades, cofounder of MoveOn

Review:

"Quick, buy The F-Word book so Susan B. Anthony can stop spinning in her grave!" Arianna Huffington, author and political commentator

Review:

"Look out — young women can rule the world. This book reminds us that feminist ideals and hard won rights are important." Krist Novoselic, author of Of Grunge & Government and former bassist of Nirvana

Review:

"Through careful research and smart insights, The F-Word proves that young woman aren't politically disengaged. It's simply a great read." Amy Richards, co-author of Manifesta

Review:

"Well-written and impressively researched, this book thoroughly demolishes the myth that the goals of the women's movement have been achieved." Ann Crittenden author of Price of Motherhood

Synopsis:

Only 18% of women under age 24 vote, compared to 53% of women over 35. Contemporary feminism has been featured recently in the New York Times, Newsweek, and on MSNBC, among others, and in an HBO film honoring women who fought for the right to vote. Reading group guide included.
