Someone wise once told me that when we know the reasons behind our actions, they have more meaning.
Think Like a Feminist: The Philosophy Behind the Revolution, by Carol Hay, was published last fall. Taking the reader through 200 years of feminist history, Hay walks through the various topics that exist within the movement and how we can talk through the more difficult issues that have not been dealt with.
If I were to recommend a book on modern feminism to someone, this book would be it. Simply and intelligently written, it is a down to earth presentation of everything that the movement represents without being too political or getting in the reader’s face.
Do I recommend it? Absolutely.
