[In this book, the author] calls for an overhaul of the women's movement. In this ... book, [she] asks the questions: Within feminism, is there room for free thinkers who oppose the party line? What if a feminist believes in capitalism? God? Patriotism? [The author] is the first to show the crisis in feminism today, which is silencing women and stripping them of power. In order to be a member of the club you must reject capitalism, see religion as a dangerous form of patriarchy, oppose the war, and turn a blind eye to the woman-defeating practices of Islam. The result contradicts the moral and ethical principles feminism was built on. [She] signals a critical need for women to come together in a pro-individualist form of feminism. -http://www.loc.gov/catdir.
