Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Billy | 2/17/2014

    " Was useful in raising my consciousness, and I was won over to her thesis that the most drastic changes for women in American social, political and economic life happened rapidly over about two generations. There's a lot in here, but I was surprised to find almost nothing on the role of religion in enforcing traditional gender notions. Gail Collins has a talent for civility and charm even when disagreeing vehemently (see her joint online columns with David Brooks); the effect is of someone with perspective and generous wisdom, such that the passion she reserves for her criticism of America's failure to ever meaningfully address the issue of early childcare is noticeably resolute (and rightfully so). Speaking of perspective, two years later this book's last section on the 2008 election helped me develop a little understanding of, at least in some way, the sincere disappointment of all those Hillary supporters - as well as the candidate herself.

    " I really enjoyed this book. It did not read like a history of the woman's movement but a review of things that happened during my life. Some things I remember well and some were just a blur. Every woman should read this. "

    " When everything changed was exactly want I was looking for. History without getting bogged down in academia or theory. "
