    1 thought on “Feminism in Our Time: The Essential Writings, World War II to the Present

    1. I've been a feminist as long as I can remember, but I have to admit that I have read few of the texts that have shaped the women's movement.Schneir's collection covers the more famous texts, such as "The Second Sex," "The Feminine Mystique," and "The Female Eunuch," but there were many lesser-known works featured that I found myself investigating after reading.This collection was insightful and endlessly relevant. Even though the selections are anywhere from 24 to 68 years old, each piece held s [...]

    2. I liked the way the author presented her research. She presented various authors with biographical summaries and a sample of each individual's work. The author gives a general overview and smattering of people involved in feminism and pivotal documents, etc in the women's movement. You can pick and choose what topics and individuals are of interest in your study of the women's movement.

    3. Really great book for understanding second wave feminism (and even a little third wave). It was tough to get through though just because it's so chock full of information, so I did actually skip a few sections. But I definitely plan to go back and read those things later on in life. Overall, I'd highly recommend this if you're interested in the history of feminism.

    4. Interesting collection of important feminist writings of XXth century, gives a general idea of the movement and constitutes a good guide to more in-depth readings. Some texts are more sound and intelligent than others.

    5. A relatively good survey of feminist writings from World War IIo present. Contains selections from texts; a great resource to have for thinkers, students, and political bodies in general.

    6. Although this book is very informative, it reads more like a history book than an interesting informative piece about the history of Feminism. Also to note, it is not from WWII to the present because it was published decades ago. Keep that in mind.

    7. Eyeopening. In fact some excerpts I read literally wide-eyed (like the woman who proclaimed that we will not be free until all human reproduction takes place outside the human body). These women are literally at war with their own biology. And they make a grave mistake in throwing off the family as a structure for society and unquestioningly accepting the government in its place. This was an informative and sobering read. It sheds a lot of light on why so many "feminists" are decidedly unfeminin [...]

    8. This is a fantastic set of essays on feminism, women of color, queer women of color, queer women in general, history, and the issues of lesbianism and women's lib in the 60s. I will never let you borrow this but I highly suggest you find a copy and read it.

    9. Not as enjoyable as its predecessor, Feminism: The Essential Historical Writings -- most likely because the passages included in that book are more iconic.
