Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Here's a book that can't be judged by its title: undisciplined in its research and organization, it reveals little about ``the future of the women's movement.'' Kamen, a reporter for the Kenosha News (Wisc.), selected her 236 interviewees in random fashion; only 28 identified themselves as feminists. Kamen's ``twentysomethings'' do establish that not everyone considers the word ``feminist'' a compliment and that younger feminists think older feminists should relinquish center stage more often. (She mentions women's studies faculties as a case in point of how ``for young women, the subtle message . . . could be that this feminism stuff is an older woman's thing.''p. 110 ) But frequently the author relegates her interviewees to providing pithy observations as she wends her way through a passel of ``feminist concerns,'' like the ``glass ceiling,'' sexual violence, child care, equal pay and contraception. There are few surprises and little depth to Kamen's discussions. However, there are occasional interesting moments, like the shrewd Ohio State activist who lures frat members to pro-choice rallies by telling them about birth-control failure rates. (Oct.)
Library Journal
Kamen, a journalist who graduated from college in 1989, has crossed the United States interviewing people of her generation (236 in all) about their perceptions of and involvement with women's issues. The responses are not tabulated or systematically analyzed, but are combined with evidence from other sources, in support of Kamen's own generalizations and conclusions. Her discussions of why so many young women staunchly support a feminist agenda while adamantly denying being feminists; why workplace and reproductive issues seem so compelling when others do not; the role of race in women's studies; and how existing feminist institutions have failed the ``twentysomethings'' are earnest and well informed, although occasional contradictions and unnecessary repetition mar the text. These data will be of little comfort to those fond of envisioning a ``post-feminist'' era and will, hopefully, provide an impetus to further studies. Recommended.-- Beverly Miller, Boise State Univ. Lib., Id.
School Library Journal
YA-- For libraries still using tattered copies of books surviving from the 1970s to satisfy 1990s school assignments on women's issues, this title will provide a much-needed bridge. Kamen was surprised and hurt to be labelled ``feminist fatale'' by her classmates when she wrote what she felt were very moderate articles for her college newspaper on issues of concern to women. After graduation she set out on a cross-country pilgrimage to gauge the condition, and perhaps discern the future of the women's movement. In the process, she spoke with many of her peers (and their mothers), and interviewed some of the finest theorists in the field. The resulting book is lively, well written, and provocative. It was never intended to stand alone as a source on particular areas of feminist theory, but it does speak from a perspective with which YA readers are likely to identify.The thorough bibliography, index, and appendices, ``Resources and Networks'' and ``Recommended Reading,'' should prove invaluable to patrons who want to delve further, and to library staff for ready reference and collection development.-- Christine C. Menefee, Fairfax County Public Library, VA
