Liberty for Women
Freedom and Feminism in the Twenty-First Century

Book Description
Liberty for Women is an eye-opening book that vividly charts a new feminism for the 21st century in a highly lucid, provocative and inspiring way. The book offers a vision of sontemporary feminism that goes beyond the dominant attitudes of today's feminist orthodoxy. The provocative writings base their arguments on individual rights and personal responsibility, stirring echoes of the ideological roots of the women's rights movement. The contributors offer surprising views on a wide range of issues that confront the modern woman, including self-defense, sexual freedom, economic well-being and employment, the promise of technology, and the place of traditional values, including the family. This new feminism, for example, asserts the rights of self-defense, champions competitive markets as the best hope for women's prosperity, defends reproductive rights, and values traditions. It sees choice as the key for all women, from housewives to CEOs. It argues that every woman's choices and expressions of self-ownership must be equally and legally respected.
