9780852652275: Women of the Revolution: Forty Years of Feminism

Interviews from Gloria Steinem to Oprah Winfrey to Nawal El Saadawi, and pieces by authors from Erica Jong to bell hooks to Beth Ditto—the very best of the Guardian's feminist writing The feminist movement of the last 40 years has won triumphs and endured trials, but it has never weakened its resolve, nor for a moment been dull. The Guardian newspaper has followed its progress throughout, carrying interviews with and articles by the major figures, chronicling with verve, wit, and often passionate anger the arguments surrounding pornography, prostitution, political representation, power, pay, parental rights, abortion rights, domestic chores, and domestic violence. Bringing that writing together for the first time, this collection includes interviews with Betty Friedan, Susan Brownmiller, Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison, Camille Paglia, Susie Orbach, and more. Other pieces include Willa Petschek on Shirley Chisholm, Beatrix Campbell on the legacy of Princess Diana, Andrea Dworkin on Bill and Hillary Clinton, Jessica Valenti on internet misogyny, and Mona Eltahawy on her assault in Cairo. Lively, provocative, thoughtful, and funny, this is the essential guide to the feminist thinking and writing of the past 40 years—the ultimate portrait of an ongoing revolution.

About the Author:

Kira Cochrane is the women's editor for the Guardian and writes a regular column in the New Statesman.

From Publishers Weekly:

Reviewed by Julie Zeilinger. In order for the feminist movement to move forward, we need to remember and learn from our past. My steadfast belief in the necessity of my peers understanding the history of feminism, compounded with the disappointing realization that most high schools fail to teach students about the movement, led me to include an entire section on the history of feminism in my feminist primer for young women. My only regret is that, when I wrote it, I had not yet read Women of the Revolution: Forty Years of Feminism. This anthology of the best feminist writing published in the Guardian (U.K.) over the past four decades paints a comprehensive portrait of the movement—not via a biased, retrospective account of historical events, but through the very voices of the women who were there when history was being made. Through interviews with powerhouses like Gloria Steinem, Oprah Winfrey, and Betty Friedan, and the inspired reporting of legendary figures past and present, including Jill Tweedie, Andrea Dworkin, bell hooks, and Ariel Levy, editor Kira Cochrane presents a fascinating window into the heart of feminism. But even more than the impressive roster of contributors (including a refreshing showing of women of color) and the high quality of content, this anthology is most striking for its representation of the themes and concerns of feminists over time: how our values have changed, what we have achieved, and how far we have left to go. Whereas most historically positioned feminist texts pay lip service to the pressing issues the women's movement has dealt with over the years—including violence against women, sexual and reproductive rights, work-life balance, and diverse representation—Women of the Revolution illustrates and personifies them, accounting for nuance and how our relationships with these issues have evolved over time through personal narratives and case studies. The value of this anthology and the rich historical perspective it presents is best represented by the words of the late Eva Figes in her essay Why the euphoria had to stop : We are in danger of being lulled into a sense of premature complacency: we may have won the first battle, but we are still a long way from winning the war. Julie Zeilinger is the author of A Little F'd Up: Why Feminism Is Not a Dirty Word (Seal Press).

When hundreds gathered in 1970 for the UK s first women s liberation conference, a movement that had been gathering strength for years burst into a frenzy of radical action that was to transform the way we think, act and live. In the 40 years since then, the feminist movement has won triumphs and endured trials, but it has never weakened its resolve, nor for a moment been dull. The Guardian has followed its progress throughout, carrying interviews with and articles by the major figures, chronicling with verve, wit and often passionate anger the arguments surrounding pornography, prostitution, political representation, power, pay, parental rights, abortion rights, domestic chores and domestic violence. These are articles that, in essence, ask two fundamental questions: Who are we? Who should we be? This collection brings together - for the first time - the very best of the Guardian s feminist writing. It includes the newspaper s pioneering women s editor, Mary Stott, writing about Margaret Thatcher, Beatrix Campbell on Princess Diana, Suzanne Moore interviewing Camille Paglia, and Maya Jaggi interviewing Oprah Winfrey; there s Jill Tweedie on why feminists need to be vocal and angry, Polly Toynbee on violence against women, Hannah Pool on black women and political power, and Andrea Dworkin writing with incendiary energy about the Bill Clinton sex scandal. Lively, provocative, thoughtful and funny, this is the essential guide to the feminist thinking and writing of the past 40 years - the ultimate portrait of an ongoing revolution.
