Chapter 1 of the Online Book Club this Week!

February 3, 2014 | Alexandra Gourdikian

This week during the Online Book Club we will be discussing Chapter 1 of Wonder Women: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection, “Growing Up Charlie.”

The transformation of women’s expectations and aspirations from the 1960s to 1970s was attributable to their mothers, the media, and the feminist movement.  Many women of the era felt trapped and therefore clung to the feminist movement in the hopes of liberation from their traditional homemaker duties in exchange for the opportunity to achieve their career goals.  Spar comments that from the victories of feminism sprung the notion that women could “have it all” and  modern day women are continually disillusioned by this attainment of perfection.  However, Spar has some solutions to offer us about combating our never ceasing quest for perfection.

We look forward to you joining us this week!

Happy reading!
