bookshelves: feminism
Read in December, 2003

Excellent. Of course it has become a staple of feminism, but people often forget how literary and elegant the writing is. I enjoyed this book not because of its earth-shattering ideas (a lot of the stuff, especially how menstruation affects women, is outdated), but because it was a pleasure to read the words.
