Description

The New York Times best-selling author of Girls & Sex and Cinderella Ate My Daughter delivers her first ever collection of essays - funny, poignant, deeply personal and sharply observed pieces, drawn from three decades of writing, which trace girls' and women's progress (or lack thereof) in what Orenstein once called a "half-changed world." 

Named one of the "40 women who changed the media business in the last 40 years" by Columbia Journalism Review, Peggy Orenstein is one of the most prominent, unflinching feminist voices of our time. Her writing has broken ground and broken silences on topics as wide-ranging as miscarriage, motherhood, breast cancer, princess culture and the importance of girls' sexual pleasure. Her unique blend of investigative reporting, personal revelation and unexpected humor has made her books best-selling classics. 

In Don't Call Me Princess, Orenstein's most resonant and important essays are available for the first time in collected form, updated with both an original introduction and personal reflections on each piece. Her takes on reproductive justice, the infertility industry, tensions between working and stay-at-home moms, pink ribbon fear-mongering and the complications of girl culture are not merely timeless - they have, like Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, become more urgent in our contemporary political climate. 

Don't Call Me Princess offers a crucial evaluation of where we stand today as women - in our work lives, sex lives, as mothers, as partners - illuminating both how far we've come and how far we still have to go.

Ce que les critiques disent

"Peggy Orenstein, contributing writer to the New York Times, reads her own columns about feminism, women's issues, and life.... Orenstein's narration is smooth and often matter-of-fact. At the same time, she reveals her passion and sometimes anger, particularly at doctors and the medical world.... An essential listen for women, and men, of all ages." (AudioFile)

Compulsory read

Great insight into what feminism means and how many things that are happening and being said that go unnoticed and need to be addressed today!
