Noted as the first post-Boomer, Gen X, or “Third Wave” feminist book (published in fall 1991, before the term “Third Wave” was coined). Praised by Susan Faludi and Naomi Wolf, the book was widely covered and reviewed, in such publications as the Washington Post, Elle, and Time. Relevant to all future generations about the challenge of overcoming the stigma of the word “feminism,” preserving past gains, and making future progress. Also makes a case for the organized women’s movement making a deliberate effort and priority to pass the torch. Written when I was 23 years old, this book explores a central conflict of Generation X women and those to follow: resistance to the label of “feminist,” but then support of the ideals of the women’s movement. Like Her Way, it is based on hundreds of original issues with a diversity of young women and incorporates current research and pop culture trends. Both books have been used as a textbook at many colleges.
