Editorial Reviews

Kay Lorraine
The best recommendation I can give “Wings & Dreams: 4 Elements of a New Feminism” is to say that it manages to be intellectual and yet concurrently readable. Most feminist books are either one or the other; occasionally they are neither. “Wings & Dreams” discusses not only a global history of women’s rights both socially and politically, but also how new philosophies must be incorporated into our thinking as we shape the course of future feminism.

Meet the Author

This is a book of essays by four different women, with different experiences and outlooks, presents views of where the feminist movement was, is and could be. The introductions put the idea of this collection of essays, which could stand on their own, into perspective, guiding the reader to the purpose of the editor and the publisher.

The format, presenting the essays in 2 languages following each other, may be confusing. While I understand the idea of the bilingual approach leading to challenging the nuances of language, my preference would be to have the entire book in one language, followed by the other. This could defeat the stated purpose, I suppose. If the target audience is mostly German/English bilingual, then the format is presented well.
