Chronicling the battles that have shaped modern conceptions of feminism across two generations, it illuminates how younger women are reliving, often without realizing it, the battles of the past. Contrary to cliches about the death of feminism, Siegel argues that younger women are not abandoning the movement but reinventing it. Underlying questions remain: after forty years, is feminism today a culture, or a cause? A movement for personal empowerment, or social change? Have women achieved equality, or do we still have a long way to go?
