about this book

A revolutionary exploration of the nature of feminism today, its impact on everyday life, and its promise for the future.

Determined to extend the boundaries of feminism to embrace social, political and economic equality for all humanity, these exciting young activists and thinkers recast the concepts of feminism to reflect their own experiences and beliefs. Inspired by activist and writer Rebecca Walker, they speak out, challenging many of their own assumptions about the women's movement and demanding that readers recognize a new relationship between the personal and the political. Black and white, male and female, gay and straight, they fearlessly describe their liberation from the feminist "ideals" that conflict with the reality of who they are, expose "shocking" secrets, and acknowledge long-hidden accomodations and anomolies.
