What drives young women and what drives them mad? Twentysomething women talk about their feminism. What they do, how they do it and why they choose to do it as feminists. Exploring a range of personal and political experiences, this collection defines the landscape in which young women stake their claim to feminism. The private collides with the public, anger with humour, desire with ideals. Writing themselves into the debate, these young women are 'talking up'. Covering a diversity of themes including relationships between older and younger women (and feminists), experiences of young migrant women, feminist activism, the marginalisation of non-white and lesbian women, the emerging role of young women in corporate, legal and educational institutions. Although young women have been publicly silent, they are neither indifferent, nor dispassionate about feminism. This book shows the diversity and depth of young women's ideas.
