Letters to a Young Feminist Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a familiar voice filled with warmth, compassion, and strength, Phyllis Chesler takes stock of her generation's legacy to the present and future, and challenges readers to protect what has been won and to confront the monumental tasks still ahead.

Book News Annotation:

This book represents an older feminist's efforts to pass on what she has learned to the next generation. Chesler (psychology and women's studies, College of Staten Island) discusses the basic aspects of feminism, explains its relevance in a world that is in danger of taking it for granted, and examines sisterhood, sex, families, motherhood, resistance to the status quo, work, and the economics of power. She is careful to include males in the new generation of feminists, with the last letter written to her son.
