Do women - whether they're twenty or forty or sixty - feel more in control of their lives? Has feminism made us more - or less - fulfilled in our relationships with men and with each other? With her keen eye for contradictions, Meredith Maran finds our new realities in surprising places: on a racquetball court facing an unyielding female opponent; before a classroom of high school students, openly discussing her bisexuality; in a courtroom during a sexual abuse trial. Through her singular experiences she illuminates the issues millions of women confront daily: her thorny relationship with her mother; the politics of flirting; the struggle to raise caring, responsible children in the face of racism and violence.

An interesting book. I couldn't relate to much of it, but I appreciated the personal perspective on early feminism. Read full review

User Review  - Kati - Goodreads

I feel really ambivalent about this book. Which might really just be me saying I feel ambivalent about second wave feminism. The writing is fine. I did read it somewhat voraciously, so maybe that says something good about it? Read full review
