"Cameron has written a brilliant guide to contemporary feminism--its radical vision of justice, its complexities, and the resistance it provokes. Though aware of such opposition, in past and present, Feminism radiates a welcome optimism. The stubborn, beautiful belief that women are people is not going to go away. Accessible and subtle, Feminism deserves a wide and appreciative audience."-- "Catharine R. Stimpson, New York University"
