From Publishers Weekly With her guide addressed to a generation of girls who have grown up "denying feminism but embracing its rewards," the youngest woman ever elected president of the California chapter of NOW seeks to make feminism palatable for a generation put off by outmoded images of unshaven legs and burning bras. Echoing Robin Morgan's phrase "sisterhood is global," Seely takes a holistic approach, touching on everything from the exploitation of sweatshop workers (90% of whom are women) and the importance of easing racial tensions within the feminist community to her own struggle against bulimia—she presents herself as living proof of the depth and prevalence of body hatred among women—along with more familiar subjects like Title IX and the politics of abortion. Each chapter in this beginner's guide is punctuated by boxes containing definitions of terms (patriarchy, glass ceiling), brief descriptions of relevant court cases and suggestions for further reading. Seely also includes examples of grassroots activism and ways of getting involved in the movement. Eschewing the exclamation points of today's "Girl Power" in favor of question marks, this is a thorough, thought-provoking introduction, but more informative than inspiring. (Jan.)

Review -, “A useful antidote to the widespread attitude of the many young women that passivity and resignation are the only rational responses to the enormous cultural, religious, political and media forces arrayed against feminism. . . . This book could be a useful supplement to Women’s Studies courses.” -Susan B. Hansen,University of Pittsburgh “With her guide addressed to a generation of girls who have grown up ‘denying feminism but embracing its rewards,’ the youngest woman ever elected president of the California chapter of NOW seeks to make feminism palatable for a generation put off by outmoded images of unshaven legs and burning bras. . . . This is a thorough, thought-provoking introduction.”-Publishers Weekly, “Seely dispels the notion that there are secrets to successful organizing by creating a step by step, compelling manual that challenges even the cynical.” -Feminist Review, “The so-called ‘third wave’—the newest generation involved in the women’s movement— faces an uphill battle in getting people to listen up, partly because of knee-jerk negative reactions to the f-word: ‘feminist.’ In fact, says Seely, ‘I’m not a feminist, but . . . ’ has become a common qualifier among young people who support the principles of equality but don’t want to be associated with words like ‘militant’ or ‘butch.’ Seely addresses this stumbling block and many others, including discord within the movement due to racial and generational differences. She provides an accessible overview of the women’s movement, including timelines, suggested reading and numerous ways for young people to get active and make a difference.” -Newsday (How-To Book of the Week),

It's really very complex in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, so I just
use world wide web for that reason, and take the most recent news.
