    I bought this because as a mother I was interested in a brand of feminism that supported my choice to become so, without judgement The problem is that it bangs on about being wife and mother so much it s clearly the only thing the author cares about or deems to define femininity or the female sex.Being a mother should be recognized as a valid aspect of womanhood, free from the vilification of ...

    I don t agree with every point the author makes, but I do agree that Feminism needs to includediverse perspectives I like that Sommers champions causes abroad like FGM and acid attacks on women in foreign countries and recognises that you don t have to be some fanatical gender separatist to care about women s rights I only wish it would have taken asecular and less divisive approach.I advise readers to keep an open mind, and have handy a pinch of salt to take I read this bearing i I don t agree with every point the author makes, but I do agree that Feminism needs to includediverse perspectives I like that Sommers champions causes abroad like FGM and acid attacks on women in foreign countries and re...
