Using Google Books to spread the feminist love

This is too neat. Blogs can now embed books available on Google Books for readers to peruse. I hope Feministing can use this to highlight awesome feminists texts… So in honor of Samhita’s recent post, check out Barbara Smith’s great book, Home Girls: A Black Feminist Anthology, after the jump. (And don’t forget to support feminists by buying their books!)

    One feminist I think we should also support is Kathleen Parker
    http://www.randomhouse.com/catalog/display.pperl?isbn=9781400065790
    excerpt:
    30 to 40% of all American children sleep in a home separate from their fathers.
    60% of bachelor’s degrees awarded in this country in 2012 will go to women.
    4 prime-time, family-focused shows (in a study of 102) portrayed the father as present and involved in his children’s lives.

    Um, Parker is actually an anti-feminist. But kudos for trying to convince my readers to buy a book that tells women they’re less than!

    Acually Jessica, Parker is a feminist.
    Granted she is not a radical or so-called gender feminist, but she is a feminist none the less.
    Just because she does not support some of the gender divisive radical feminist ideals does not mean we should not respect her opinion.

    currently there is a new wave of modern feminists that is growing very fast and attracting a lot of young people. I think we should all check it out.

    “many men resent women because they’ve been forced to pretend that women are equals, and men know they’re not.”
    Please explain how someone who says this is a feminist.
    I know it’s not my place to ask you to leave the site, but it’s OK if I just say I would really like you to, right?

    The city has managed to keep the ruins, which age of two thousand years! Today, the centre of the European attraction, Grenoble is at top of technological development. Hospitable and opened, Grenoble waits for you!
