Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women

by Susan Faludi


Curator Reviews

Kathy Najimy

I remember reading the hardback first edition of “Backlash” (a feminist classic) in the backseat of a friend’s Buick on the way home from a particularly wild Catskills trip, simultaneously swallowing Doritos and my rage and sadness at the reality of antifeminist backlash. Faludi has published an updated version — especially relevant in our new Trump America — just as interesting, motivating and rage-inducing as the first. This book hurts, but it moves us forward. “Backlash” continues to be an informative wake up call for women of my and my daughter Samia’s generation.
