A rich and often moving collection of essays by women and their views on feminism: how it affects their lives, how they came to see themselves as feminists, and how the concept of feminism has evolved.

These first-person essays, which cut across race, class, and sexuality, are intensely personal accounts by women on how they came to be where they are today, and where they are going. In many ways, these essays address how "feminism" has become a dirty word of sorts, and how the current backlash against feminism -- "is it still necessary?" -- distracts from the real issue: the ongoing struggle for gender equality.

The book attempts to identify feminism in all its guises: the urgency to break from gender stereotyping that begins when mothers dress their daughters in specifically "feminine" clothing; the responsibilities of raising children not burdened by sexist expectations; the inner conflicts of a Christian lesbian; the dilemma of choosing not to be a mother; young women who feel the impact of those who came before, and how the struggle for women's rights is as relevant now as it ever was.
