Feminism in the 21st Century - in books

Feminism in the 21t Century by Zoe Williams

This contains a review of Caitlin Moran's book, How to be a Woman, Sylvia Walby's The Future of Feminism, and Granta's latest edition The F Word, which includes Rachel Cusks' memoir of her divorce. RachelCusk wrote a memoir of motherhood entitled A Life's Work: On Becoming a Mother, as well as the novel, Arlington Park, about a day in the life a group of mothers. Seems her husband, a lawyer, who stopped working to look after the children while she wrote, has divorced her. She questions her feminism.

A nice update
