Sisterhood, Interrupted: From Radical Women to Grrls Gone Wild

Front Cover
Macmillan, May 15, 2007 - History - 224 pages
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.
