Overview

Some twenty-five years after the height of the "women's liberation movement," feminism has, in certain circles, become a dirty word; for some, it is no longer relevant, nor descriptive of women's lives today. For others, however, the struggles and the issues continue, implying the need for a redefinition of feminism and its role in modern society. Bringing it Home is a collection of intensely personal essays by women, from diverse experiences and backgrounds, on the role of feminism in their lives. Provocative and inspiring, the book brings feminism home and sits her down for frank discussions about life, love, motherhood, daughterhood, work, sex, and community. From the kitchen sink to the corporate boardroom, these essays peel away the rhetoric from feminist discourse, and pose meaningful questions for women everywhere.
