Overview

Women's Studies students talk about sexism, racism, violence against women, sexuality and school in this look at contemporary society from some powerful new voices. Through their journal writings, these women confront both traditional norms and contemporary feminism. The book's impact stems in part from the diverse backgrounds of the writers who range in age from eighteen to fifty-five, some back to school after thirty years absence, others just out of high school. Many are mothers, some are poor. The contributors come from differing family and cultural backgrounds, and live in a variety of households: heterosexual, lesbian and bisexual.
