Zeilinger tells her readers (her target audience being female members of her own generation) everything they need to know about the history, current perception, and possible future paths of the feminist movement, while providing a balanced, honest opinion on its highs and lows. The trick is that in doing this she still comes across as a normal, likeable young woman. She's not preachy or overly intense, the text reads well (although I do think there were points where she got a tad too casual for my taste), and the boxes of additional information that covered everything from historical events to important people were interesting and informative. The best part about this book is that it's a READABLE book on feminism and so you can recommend it, and recommend it I shall.

This young women really tells it like it is. It should be required reading for anyone in politics who is trying to figure out why so many young people don't vote.
