Hillary Clinton presents her campaign for the presidency and her long career in public life as a triumph of feminism. But an all-star lineup of American feminists here says, "It's not that simple." In a history of proposals and policies on welfare, Wall Street, crime and policing, immigration, international health, and war, Clinton has advanced ideas and laws that have actually hurt women-and restricted the powerful idea of feminism itself...From leading feminist figures like Roxane Gay and Barbara Ehrenreich to a new generation of young women writers and thinkers, this book restores to feminism its revolutionary meaning and outlines how truly robust feminist policies could transform the United States and its relation to the world.
Author Liza Featherstone writes about feminism, labor, education, and social justice. She is the author of Selling Women Short: The Landmark Battle for Workers' Rights at Wal-Mart
