"What defines your generation of women? A few years ago, Paula Goldman emailed this question to women aged twenty to forty around the world. She wrote a short call for submissions, asking women to submit artwork and writings responding to the above question, and with the help of a few organizations working internationally, she sent it out. Thousands of responses later, the result is this book, comprising entries by more than one hundred women from fifty-seven countries and virtually every populated region of the globe." "The works in these pages are inspiring, challenging, enlightening, funny, and sometimes shocking. The contributors emphasize that the world they inhabit is different from the world of their mothers and grandmothers. Many have lived in more than one country, many are biracial or multiracial, and most have had access to more education than any women in their families before them. They come from myriad geographic, ethnic, spiritual, economic, and educational backgrounds. They celebrate their differences, but they also find strength in their commonalities." "Meet Lada Karitskaya, a Russian woman who turns down the opportunity to become a mail-order bride; Israeli singer Achinoam Nini (aka Noa), whose life changed dramatically when she became a mother; slam poet Aya DeLeon of the United States, who fantasizes about what it would be like if woman ran the hip-hop industry; and Toyin Sokefun of Nigeria, who uses photography to explore the boundaries between society's ideals of beauty and women's self-images."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
