5.0 out of 5 stars Much needed review of modern feminism, 22 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Reclaiming the F Word: The New Feminist Movement (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Feminism has something of an image problem these days. Many people have visions of feminism and feminists which grew from it's heyday in the 1970s. Still more people are left wondering what being a feminist means in 2010. If like me you have long had a sense of unease about the roles and images of women in modern culture but were unable to find anything worth getting really worked up about then this book will change all that.

The author starts with a somewhat historical introduction of the roots of feminism and its effects on the world to the present day. She then sets out a list of aims and objectives for the future. Each subsequent chapter is based around one of those aims with a thorough description of the problem in readable way that everyone can relate to followed by a practical approach to solving it.

This book is infuriating largely because it's insightful. I think it would be difficult for anyone to read this and not feel a sense of the frustration felt by the author. On the other hand she refuses to wallow in the problems and is keen to generate a new spirit of positive feminism. She does it very well and the book is a very good read at the same time.
