Challenging. A definite must read for any budding feminist this book will definitely knock your socks off. Much of the content imagines what a future feminist world might evolve into. Some of it is a little hard to take and seems to me to total ignore the fact that human beings are biological animals with all the drives and preprogramming that come with that state. However, challenging one’s own prejudices and unexamined beliefs is a good place to start when trying to recognise one’s own misogyny. Growing up in the patriarchy makes it very hard to discern sometimes when one is conforming to standards enforced by the culture rather than living one’s own life. This book is a great way to sweep some of the cobwebs away and discover who you really are.
