Still controversial after nearly 10 years....
am 22. September 1999
Reading the other readers reviews, I am still in awe that this book, written 7 years ago, still gets folks into a rage, which it is supposed to do. One reviewer states that "we already know this stuff anyway.." written in Jan. of 1999. We know this 'stuff' because Wolfe pointed it out. Wolfe was raised during the 60's and 70's when bra banning was in and feminism was not yet a dirty word. This is the second time within nearly a decade that I have read the book....and if you can get past the beginning, it still has meaning. It remains required reading for women studies at many universities and is as controversial and enraging today as it was when first published. It will certainly go down in history as a 'feminist writing'. For that alone, it is worth spending the ten bucks and reading.
