Still worth reading even after all these years!,
This review is from: The Women's Room (VMC) (Paperback)Despite the many (and long overdue) changes in attitudes and practices there is much in this seminal work that ought still to strike a chord with to-day's women.Although life in the UK in the 60/70's was a very different experience from that in the States there are, I think, enough similarities for the European/British woman to empathise with.
It's a brilliant choice for a book group reading - there is plenty to discuss.
Her male characterisation is considerably weaker than that of the women in her tale but it's a women's story not a man's. Take on board the central thesis and don't be distracted by the smaller negatives.
