Description - Stepping Out of Line by Cheryl Hercus

What does it mean to be a feminist today? Why do some women become feminists and others do not? Do some women simply "get it" while others are living in denial of their truly oppressed lives, i.e., living in false consciousness? At a time when "feminist" is a label that many young women shun, when the all-too-common refrain among young women is "I'm not a feminist, but", Stepping Out of Line offers an insightful account of the struggle of becoming and being a feminist. Hercus offers a compelling new argument for why some women become feminist and others do not that moves beyond the stereotypes of what feminism means. Generally, Hercus provides a new understanding of feminist social movements of resistance and collective action. She offers a new theory for understanding political involvement which looks at "knowledge, feeling, being, and doing" feminism. Specifically, the study focuses on contemporary Australian women from the ages of 18-35. Engagingly written and full of quotes from these women, Stepping Out of Line offers a new understanding of feminist identity in a globalized world.
