Peggy Orenstein’s bestselling Schoolgirls is the classic study of teenage girls and self-esteem. Now Orenstein uses the same interviewing and reporting skills to examine the lives of women in their 20s, 30s and 40s.

The advances of the women’s movement allow women to grow up with a sense of expanded possibilities. Yet traditional expectations have hardly changed. To discover how they are navigating this double burden personally and professionally, Orenstein interviewed hundreds of women and has blended their voices into a compelling narrative that gets deep inside their lives and choices. With unusual sensitivity, Orenstein offers insight and inspiration for every woman who is making important decisions of her own.

Review: Flux: Women on Sex, Work, Love, Kids, and Life in a Half-Changed World

User Review  - Charlane - Goodreads

Peggy Orenstein interviews hundreds of women (individually & in groups) and her writing offers genuine understanding. I liked reading about other women's lives by someone that was not afraid to break down the facade we women put up - sometimes. Read full review
