Listen Up: Voices from the Next Feminist Generation,
Barbara Findlen, ed.
This is a collection of stories and articles written for and by women of our generation, from all walks of life. It's a good "starting point" for people who are new to the whole feminist thing, and a refreshing affirmation for those who've been in the movement for a while. All in all, good stuff. You'll laugh, you'll cry. Trust me.
Reviving Ophelia, Mary Pipher, Ph.D A look at what's happening to young women today through the eyes of an "outsider;" this book is one of the reasons this page got started. At some points it's frightening to see that this is actually happening to us, but at the same time, it lets us know that we are not alone in our struggle to become a woman in a world that's not too kind to us.
Peggy Orenstein
Similar to Ophelia, this book takes a close look at the lives of young women and girls today. The book focuses on the difficulties that young women of color and young white women face, examining both the vast differences and striking similarities.
Third Wave Agenda: Being Feminist, Doing Feminism,
Leslie Heywood and Jennifer Drake, eds.
Another collection of stories from the young feminists, but this one focuses on the question, "So, what is it that we're doing?" It takes a look at the history of parts of the feminist movement, critiques them, and puts into perspective our tasks for tomorrow.
