The New Victorians
A Young Woman's Challenge to the Old Feminist Order
Journalist Rene Denfeld explains why her generation has become alienated from the women’s movement, maintaining that the actions of the movement’s current leadership have actually encouraged a return to the kind of sexual repression and political powerlessness challenged by feminists in the 1970s. Here she offers a practial battle plan which includes confronting the issues of child care and birth control, working for equal government representation, and treating sexual assault as a serious crime.
