Summary
In What Are We Fighting For? Joanna Russ argues strongly against the shift in contemporary feminist theory - from the direct political struggle of the 1960s and '70s to a depoliticized focus on women's psychology and personal relations. Irreverent and rich with insight, this book connects the feminist movement to struggles for racial and class equality as it traces the highlights and low points of feminist thinking in the past twenty-five years on a range of issues: the parallels between the current state of feminism and the setbacks in American and English feminism after World War I; why feminism must accept the leadership of women of color; and the necessity of socialist and feminist theory, despite traditional clashes between feminists and the Left. What Are We Fighting For? will help feminists and their allies connect the issues, build coalitions, and revive the movement's radical spirit
