From Library Journal:

Chesler, perhaps best known for Women and Madness (LJ 10/15/72), presents a collection of her essays and papers on a variety of feminist issues. She discusses patriarchy, psychiatric treatment of women, custody battles, child abuse, women and the criminal justice system, and Camp Sister Spirit, a space in Mississippi created for lesbian women. In one paper she epouses the cause of Mary Beth Whitehead of the Baby M case and in another criticizes Naomi Wolf's Fire with Fire (LJ 1/94) for sounding like "women's magazine advice." A scholar and a radical feminist, Chesler does not equivocate. Recommended for all women's collections in high school, public, and academic libraries.
