From Library Journal
This collection of essays, stories, and poetry edited by [Dena] Taylor (Women of the 14th Moon, LJ 10/1/91) includes 61 contributions from feminists sharing their parenting experiences. Unlike Carmichael's Non-Sexist Childraising (1977), this is not so much a how-to book as a collection of short reports from the home front detailing successes-and some failures-in the struggle to raise children free of sexism, racism, and homophobia. In an apt summary for the whole collection, Rosalind Warren writes, "It's not easy teaching a handsome little middle-class white boy to think like a feminist-everybody else is telling him that the world is his oyster; meanwhile we're telling him he has to share." Other noteworthy contributors include Anna Quindlen, Audre Lorde, and Ms. magazine's Robin Morgan. While this book will have to search for an audience of parents who actually have time to read, it is recommended for public libraries.
