5.0 out of 5 stars A must read if you're concerned with feminist ideas and/or social issues, 7 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Top Girls (Student Editions) (Paperback)
Though it is also a book you are going to enjoy just for its quality as a piece of literature, it is really interesting and suprising the way Churchill presents different sides of the same die without the reader even noticing the change of perspective. Churchill not only depicts different social pre-established models of the 'typical womanly roles' (heartless bussiness woman only worried about her career, failing to have any kind of human relationship; the housekeeper, meant to take care of the house and children; the lazy and somehow silly middle-class woman who is not supposed to achieve nothing in life; the liberal woman in charge of their sexual lives but making themselves objects opressed by the system at the same time; wives subjugated by their husbands and forgeting about themselves and their own necessities); she also criticizes it, such in a subtle way that it makes the reader see this critique as doomed to fail or to follow an utopian unrealistic dream of social feminism capable of changing the real situation in which women as a totality is opressed and being kept, not only by mean, but by patriarchy and capitalism, making them part of the opressor-opressed relationship.
