HASH(0x9f084edc) out of 5 stars I can't go a day without pointing out something I've learned from this book May 31 2012
By Yadi - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a must read for any woman. I must admit that the only reason I even read this was for a class, which was good, because that gave me the opportunity to share my ideas on the reading. This book changed my perspective. I hadn't realized how much power men had over women and how oblivious the majority of us are to it. A bit of warning: you will never be able to take in media or interact with people in quite the same way.

HASH(0x9f08a144) out of 5 stars SO Worth it Oct. 8 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Love this book so much! It is so interesting and informative, and I am proud to say that the topic of feminism does not frighten me anymore. I have gained knowledge that inspires me to think outside the box and to think more about women related issues. Instead of peering through dirty glass, I am cleaning the glass and looking on the other side towards new feminist ideas and values. The chapters are to the point and easy to read, and I have read chapters that were not assigned just because I wanted to and they looked interesting. Definitely worth the money!

I purchased this book for a WS 2050 course. The readings are engaging and well laid out to facilitate discussion; you will want to keep reading and actually talk about the content. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about women's studies and feminism.

HASH(0x9f08a3fc) out of 5 stars Informative In Every Way Oct. 10 2012
By AJ Uchiha - Published on
Format: Paperback
It's hard to find a book about feminism that covers all aspects of it. It's not easy for any one book to explore the different struggles that women of different race, religion, class, and culture face every day. This one does it. The articles present, written by various women from countless backgrounds, give a strong picture of what life is like for women in all parts of society, what makes them similar and different from one another. And it manages it all without being "preachy" about it.
