The very first book of the week!!

The Great Feminist Denial
Monica Dux & Zora Simic
Melbourne University Press

All around us feminism is getting the blame. Feminism has gone from being a movement that helps women to one that is the cause of all that is wrong in women’s lives.

The authors who both describe themselves as feminists examine the popular debates in which feminism stands accused. This refreshing book puts an ailing feminist past to rest, and proposes a new way ahead for young women of today to call themselves feminists.

Monica Dux is a Melbourne writer who contributes regularly to the Age. Zora Simic is a lecturer in Australian history at ANU.

Book summaries are care of the lovely Gail at the Feminist Bookshop
