Freedom Femisnm: Meet the feminists your professors never told you about

If someone asked, "Are you a feminist?" how would you respond?

Most Americans—including large majorities of women—say no. In the AEI book, "Freedom Feminism: Its Surprising History and Why it Matters Today," Christina Hoff Sommers seeks to recover the lost history of American feminism by introducing readers to feminism's forgotten heroines. She demonstrates that a new philosophy of "freedom feminism"—in which women are free to employ their equal status to pursue happiness in their own distinctive ways—holds the key to a feminist renaissance.
