Dimen provides a synthesis of recent feminist thought for general readers. Her book is both scholarly and anecdotal, intertwining these two styles in an intriguing fashion. A composite woman is followed through a "typical" day with each incident she faces analyzed from a feminist perspective. "Its two concurrent voices, expressing the personal and the political, examine feminine experience not in compartments but as it is lived in two coexistent realitiesthe inner, psychological one and the outer, social one." The final chapter provides sources for further study and gives the reader insight into the origin of thoughts and ideas presented in the text. This unique book is not light reading. For most college and university libraries and public libraries with women's studies collections. Susan A. McBride, L.R.C, Northeast Texas Community Coll., Mt. Pleasant
