Though I more often ponder the through-lines and continuities, the differences between feminisms of different generations sometimes just kinda hit you over the head. Note the difference in these titles:
There's feministing.com founder Jessica Valenti's Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman's Guide to Why Feminism Matters. (Be sure to check out Rebecca Traister's interview in Salon this week.)
And there's former 9-5 director Ellen Bravo's new book, Taking on the Big Boys: Why Feminism Is Good for Families, Business, and the Nation.
On other fronts, throwing a bone to those of us (ok, us writers) who are obsessed with the question of how other books actually sell, the New York Times reports today on sales figures for a number of recent "mommy books," including Leslie Bennetts'. (thank you, Laura!) Word on the street on how they sell? They don't.
