Synopsis: Alciun Design Award, Honourable Mention
Click: Gloria Steinhem’s familiar expression for the moment of feminist self-awareness, the radicalization of consciousness, resonates loudly today as it did for the movement’s founders. Feminism was born of women’s experience and for many that experience was an instant of recognition, a flood of light, a new and sudden sensibility. What all feminists share is revelation.
In search of those definitive click moments, poet and anthologist Crosbie asked thirty women – writers, journalists, musicians, actors, academics and artists - who have inscribed feminism in their lives and work to recount the experiences that made the personal political for them. The result is an electrifying anthology that takes flight from a common phenomenon but overflows with feminism’s diversity, contrariness, and truth-telling strength.
British Columbia poet Lorna Crozier writes of making sense of her mother’s seemingly contradictory life;
Toronto journalist, broadcaster and activist June Callwood shares the episodes that made her a social activist;
American essayist and author Sallie Tisdale finds meaning in laundry;
For Yugoslav journalist Slavenka Drakulic, liberation was the freedom to wear lipstick and heels;
For Egyptian scholar Nawal El-Saadawi, it was questioning the favouritism shown to her brother.
Toronto writer and editor Naomi Klein reflects on the Montreal massacre;
Mamie Van Doren, on her role as Hollywood sex symbol; and
Dr. Debra Orenstein fought to take her place as a seventh-generation rabbi in Los Angeles; New York shock-rocker Kembra Pfahler, for the right to be as outrageous as she dared.
This rich collection brings together thirty women of varying ages, races, religions, classes and attitudes; all contribute here to the feminist discourse in voices that are funny, sensual, radical, angry, honest and unforgettable.
Click is Lynn Crosbie’s second anthology. The first was the best-selling and notorious collection of feminist erotica The Girl Wants To.
