Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this groundbreaking book, outspoken feminist Ann Russo offers a call to action to the feminist movement to truly become the inclusive, progressive, and supportive group that it claims to be. Russo challenges feminists to address lesbian battering, the social implications of lesbian pornography, as well as racism and white privilege in feminist theories and politics. Herself a survivor of sexual assault, Russo argues that if we want the violence against women to end, we must address the issues with honesty and clarity. This is an eye-opening, unflinching look at the women's movement and the violence done to women every day.

Synopsis:

In this groundbreaking book, outspoken feminist Ann Russo calls the feminist movement to task for their silence on such "embarrassing" topics as lesbian battering, lesbian pornography, and racism in the feminist movement.

Russo, a survivor of sexual assault, argues that if we want the violence against women to end, we must address the issues with honesty and clarity. Russo analyzes the violence that is done to women, the violence women do to each other and the violence that women commit. She provides a multi-oppression approach by incorporating issues of gender, race, class, and sexuality into her analysis.
