Sisterhood, Interrupted: From Radical Women to Grrls Gone Wild

by

Sisterhood, Interrupted: From Radical Women to Grrls Gone Wild Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Contrary to clichés about the end of feminism, Deborah Siegel argues that younger women are reliving the battles of its past, and reinventing it--with a vengeance. From feminist blogging to the popularity of the WNBA, girl culture is on the rise. A lively and compelling look back at the framing of one of the most contentious social movements of our time, Sisterhood, Interrupted exposes the key issues still at stake, outlining how a twenty-first century feminist can reconcile the personal with the political and combat long-standing inequalities that continue today.

Synopsis:

In the vein of Manifesta, an illuminating look at the evolution of contemporary feminism

Synopsis:

Chronicling the battles that have shaped modern conceptions of feminism across two generations, Sisterhood, Interrupted illuminates how younger women are reliving—often without realizing it—the battles of the past. 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?
