Review:

"Compiled by authors Martin (Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters) and Sullivan (Commencement), this volume looks at the catalytic moments when 28 women (and one man) found their way to feminism. Including writers, activists, and educators, contributors provide perspective and personal revelations from all stages of life. Joshunda Sanders, an Austin newspaper reporter, talks about growing up poor and black in 'the least desirable place in New York' and how it led to her embrace of 'womanist' thought; Indian American writer and educator Mathangi Subramanian describes years of struggle with the feminist 'label,' navigating the cross-currents of her grandmother's pressure to marry and her mother's enthusiasm for independence (and feminist classics like Susan Estrich's Sex & Power); Martin herself contributes a piece contrasting her own coming-of-age, involving a college visit from Manifesta authors Amy Richards and Jennifer Baumgardner, with her mother's: 'This wasn't the swishy skirt feminism that my mom had manifested at her once-a-month women's groups. This was contemporary, witty, brash, even a little sexy.' With this enervating collection, Martin and Sullivan help continue that modernizing trend." Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

When did you know you were a feminist? Whether it was a scene in a television show, an experience in school, or a specific day at work, many women can point to a particular moment in which they knew — or realized — they were feminists. Accomplished young authors Courtney E. Martin and J. Courtney Sullivan offer a look at feminism in the lives of young women — and tackle the questions of what made them feminists, how they became to define themselves as feminists, and how that identity has shifted over time. "Click" features a range of women, each sharing their personal and self-defining stories. Sometimes emotional, sometimes humorous, each of these stories offers something to which other women can relate. In a time of feminist reflection, Martin and Sullivan offer a look at feminism for the under-40 set.

Synopsis:

When did you know you were a feminist? Whether it happened at school, at work, while watching TV, or reading a book, many of us can point to a particular moment when we knew we were feminists. In Click, editors Courtney E. Martin and J. Courtney Sullivan bring us a range of women—including Jessica Valenti, Amy Richards, Shelby Knox, Winter Miller, and Jennifer Baumgardner—who share stories about how that moment took shape for them.

Sometimes emotional, sometimes hilarious, this collection gives young women who already identify with the feminist movement the opportunity to be heard—and it welcomes into the fold those new to the still-developing story of feminism.

Another winner from Seal Press! Click is a great compilation of essays from "Third Wave" feminists. The suject matter covers everything from gender binaries to footwear, all delivered in well-written and thoughtful essays from some very inspiring women. Reading this compilation was definitely a rousing reminder of the feminist movement's great victories and the work yet to come.
