I will always be "currently reading" this book - in fact, I am once again currently reading it! There is always something to learn from it - as a feminist woman of color, I highly appreciate this book for widening the scope of the discussion to include South Asian/Indian women and seeking to create ways to sustainably transform this disempowering culture. Gloria Anzaldua gave us the amazing gift of her insight and dedication - I have a lot of hope for the future of things while I read this...

Recommends it for: EVERYONE! If everyone read this book, it could save the world! :)
Recommended to Meen by: Amazon, actually, b/c I bought the 1st Bridge there!
This will always be on my currently-reading shelf. It is like a bible for me, and I read from it most nights to continually nurture my commitment to working towards the creation of radically inclusive human community. And like some other reviewers, I recommend reading This Bride Called My Back first, so you can fully appreciate the metaphor of life on/as the bridge...
I love this book. It may intimidate you at first because it has so many pages, but it's a great read. You will have endless conversations with friends about it and everyone can relate to the topics.
