Customer comments on this Youngstown Ohio Book
Like a soft rain on parched earth
This is your Feminist Consciousness: (Imagine a geranium, wilted and bedraggled, in a cracked flowerpot.)
This is your Feminist Consciousness after reading SISTERHOOD IS FOREVER: (Imagine the same geranium, but now it is vibrant with new blooms. Its wide, striped leaves obscure the rim of its painted pottery planter. Bees and butterflies alight on its red floral globes.)
Well, that's how it was for mine. Morgan's first two Sisterhood anthologies introduced me to Feminism and shaped the way I understand economics, relationships, spirituality -- (pretty much everything!) But I read them years ago when I was in college. Although I proudly identify myself as a Feminist, I haven't felt very politically active in the past decade. SISTERHOOD IS FOREVER reminded me of the many shapes political action can take. It introduced women who are making a positive difference in women's lives -- and in the whole wide world -- in a breathtaking diversity of ways. Writers, musicians, doctors, mothers, representatives in Congress, organizers and others tell how they work, what they do, how much they have accomplished, and what they hope to achieve.
SISTERHOOD IS FOREVER really does represent a wide varity of points of view. Young and old women, women of many different ethnic groups, women with disabilities, poverty activists, professional women, and more have space on these pages.
Read it and realize that you are part of a proud and powerful global sisterhood of Feminists.
