Über diesen Titel
Most women embrace equality, but reject "feminism." In clear and brilliant prose, the author of the best-selling The Beauty Myth shows how this rift came about, and how to close it. A practical and inspiring road map for personal and political equality in our time.From Booklist:
Wolf sees the political and cultural "genderquake" set off by Anita Hill in 1991 as evidence for "the seemingly ludicrous assertion that women already run the country--in electoral and consumer terms, not, of course, in economic terms--and have the power now to bring about the conditions that can begin to secure our equality." Despite the backlash documented by Susan Faludi--and by Wolf in her first book, The Beauty Myth (1991)--Fire with Fire argues for a more inclusive, less doctrinaire feminist movement; for a new "power feminism" to replace the "victim feminism" that has dominated the Reagan-Bush retrenchment years; and for a female psychology of power that, in place of the aspiration to "niceness" and fear of power at the center of traditional acculturation, permits women to explore and actualize all aspects of their personalities. Fundamentally, Wolf insists that "difference feminism" mistakes nurture for nature and therefore misrepresents reality: the enemy is not men but patriarchy; the goal for women should be teamwork and respect, rather than sisterhood and intimacy; new psychological strategies and effective use of the powers women already have can produce "victory in our lifetime." Fire with Fire is certain to spark controversy; expect requests. Mary Carroll
