"No matter how wise a mother's advice is, we listen to our peers."

I've had the pleasure of reviewing this book: Looser, Devoney. Rev. of Not My Mother’s Sister: Generational Conflict and Third-Wave Feminism, by Astrid Henry. WSQ: Women’s Studies Quarterly 34.3–4 (2006): 245–48. Print.

This book was nothing special. There was some interesting discussion on the different ways the various waves have approached feminist theory, especially in terms of sexuality in gender, but it was repetitive and didn't really say much.

Though I definitely disagree with many of her statements of lesbian sexual practices, this book is genious! It certainly takes feminist theory, research, and activist methodology to new levels.

just started this book but great for any "3rd wave" feminists having issues/conflicts with "2nd wavers" and the understanding of the dynamic between thw "waves"

DNF; a lot of historical feminism but it was so boring and academic I had no patience for it.
