I was looking forward to reading this, from what I'd heard and read about it, it sounded like it was going to be a good time. But 100 pages in, I'm finding it a hard slog. Repetitive and, surprisingly boring. Not what I was expecting.

This was a bit of a slog for me, but well worth the read. It's a good companion to The Half Has Never Been Told, which is about slavery, white supremacy and capitalism on the domestic front.

I really enjoyed this, the writing is engaging and the subject matter is absorbing. A great read and, like all my favorite books, it points me to other books I should read.

Marguerite Duras
“Women must find their own answer. That’s the important thing. I’m no longer interested in books about women written by men. Even if I could believe in their objectivity, I just can’t find their opinions relevant. Now I will only believe what a woman has to say about women, because even if it’s not entirely true, it’s her struggle and she’s on the way to the answer.

Many of you seek masculine approval. Even though you have inside you your way of talking and writing, you have mountains of it inside you, and even though it is enough to begin expressing yourselves so long as it is with your vocabulary, your abstractions, and your own conceptualization, I think you are still afraid of the master: men. Of their judgment. As long as you have this fear, you will not progress. I think the future belongs to women. Men have been completely dethroned. Their rhetoric is stale, used up. We must move on the rhetoric of women, one that is anchored in the organism, in the body.”
Marguerite Duras
