Library Journal Review

This is an anthology of 28 essays in which "Generation X" ("twentysomething") women explore their concepts of feminism. Within the essays are various stories of how these young women awakened to the realization of sexism, racism, or classism through personal experience. While some of the women talk of surviving anorexia, fat oppression, rape, multiple abortions, AIDS, physical disabilities, and sexism in the workplace, others tell of coming to terms with their own sexuality and integrating cultural, ethnic, and family traditions with feminism. The importance of inclusion in 1990s feminism is noted in several essays and is highlighted in those written by African Americans, Asian Americans, and Native Americans. While most of the essays are interesting, enlightening, and offer encouragement for the future, others exude immaturity and youthful rebellion that are less encouraging.‘Jeris Cassel, Rutgers Univ.
