Product Details


“Leora is one of the most astute and thoughtful of the new generation of feminist writers, bringing both a rare warmth and a courageous conviction to all her work.” –Elizabeth Wurtzel, author of Prozac Nation

“Although many women feel no choice but to endure constant pressure and self-doubt, Tanenbaum counters that competition is a learned behavior, not human nature, and the consequences are rarely worth the meager rewards. The book’s accessible approach to the contradictions between feminist rhetoric and women’s real experiences, especially in the still-controversial realm of working mothers, is sure to attract even more attention for this fast-rising social critic.” Publishers Weekly

“Tanenbaum’s inquiry, which focuses (though not exclusively) on young white American women of means, blends well-documented research, interviews, and personal reflection in a lively, accessible style.” –Janet Ingraham Dwyer
