To be real: telling the truth and changing the face of feminism
Determined to extend the boundaries of feminism to embrace social, political, and economic equality for all humanity, these twenty-one exciting young activists and thinkers recast the concepts of feminism to reflect their own personal experiences and beliefs. Inspired by activist and writer Rebecca Walker, they speak out, challenging many of their assumptions about the women's movement and demanding that readers recognize a new relationship between the personal and the political. Black and white, male and female, gay and straight, they fearlessly describe their liberation from the feminist "ideals" that conflict with the reality of who they are, expose "shocking" secrets, and acknowledge long-hidden accommodations and anomalies. Controversial and provocative, To Be Real is a blueprint for the creation of a new political force.
