The Feminism of Uncertainty : A Gender Diary, Paperback / softback Book

The Feminism of Uncertainty : A Gender Diary Paperback / softback


The Feminism of Uncertainty brings together Ann Snitow's passionate, provocative dispatches from forty years on the front lines of feminist activism and thought.

In such celebrated pieces as "A Gender Diary"-which confronts feminism's need to embrace, while dismantling, the category of "woman"-Snitow is a virtuoso of paradox.

Freely mixing genres in vibrant prose, she considers Angela Carter, Doris Lessing, and Dorothy Dinnerstein and offers self-reflexive accounts of her own organizing, writing, and teaching.

Her pieces on international activism, sexuality, motherhood, and the waywardness of political memory all engage feminism's impossible contradictions-and its utopian hopes.
