Magda ANYONE..interested in the topic of how women are portrayed, treated and how they are trained to behave in the 21st century. Anyone wanting a modern interpretation of 'feminism'. Especially if they grew up, like me, reading Backlash by Susan Faludi written in the 90's. I haven't hit a 'distressing topic' yet, other than the whole book talking about real issues for women these days. Seriously Laura, most teens just wouldn't be interested but if they were I'd hand it to them without hesitation. It actually affirms women who are different, who want to be different or who just don't fit into main stream expectations.
